Steve Torino, Principal Solutions Architect
About this talk
2020 has been a year full of change, and we've gone through digital transformation initiatives in the span of a single year that probably would have taken us many years otherwise. As COVID-19 has been pervasive across global headlines, cybercriminals have taken advantage of the chaos leading to an increase in cyber attacks seen in 80% of firms 2020. Cloud-based attacks rose 630% between January and April, phishing attempts rose 600% since February, and ransomware attacks rose 148% in March, according to FinTech News.
In this webinar, we delve into detail on the most newsworthy attacks of 2020, the most pervasive cyber trends, and postulate whether cyber risk could have been mitigated to help organizations avoid these events.
