About this talk

In July 2019, Paige Thompson, a former Amazon employee, was arrested for the Capital One breach that affected over 100 million customers who had applied for a credit card with Capital One. While the focus of the breach was initially on Capital One, investigations are now being undertaken by numerous other organizations following evidence of data exfiltration. As investigations continue, businesses need to understand what happened to Capital One, so they can ensure an attack like theirs doesn’t happen to them. Join Instart's Sr. Technologist, Andy Wyatt, to discuss: -What happened during the Capital One breach -The key takeaways your business can learn from this breach -Why Instart's web application firewall can make a difference in preventing a breach like this
