Nation-State Attacks and You

Presented by

Johna Till Johnson, CEO and Founder, Nemertes Research

About this talk

What are nation-state cybersecurity attacks, and why should you care about them? Cybersecurity professionals at most critical infrastructure providers and defense-related organizations are familiar with such attacks. Cybersecurity professionals at other organizations are often less aware, because they mistakenly believe they won't be targets. That's a mistake: Not only are a wide range of organizations (from not-for-profits to educational institutions to humdrum manufacturing plants) at risk, increasing your level of awareness and understanding of nation-state attacks is vital to understanding how cyberthreats will grow and evolve. Nation-state actors are often sophisticated and well-funded, and they serve as bellwethers for attacks to come. Understanding them today can help your organization protect itself tomorrow.
