About this talk

The year 2020 has accelerated organizations' digital transformations, particularly cloud migrations and the development of remote work capabilities. This rapid change has drastically altered the way that we work and consume data--creating exciting new paradigms, but also bringing new risks along with it. This session will analyze the security breaches that have occurred so far in 2020, and will discuss what defenses would have been vital for the prevention of these attacks. We’ll examine which security projects should be the “tip of the spear” in 2021 to help you reduce your attack surface, as well as look to the future to predict how the attack landscape may continue to change.
