About this talk
Geopolitical instability and cybersecurity are unavoidably intertwined. Organizations of all types can be at higher risk even if they’re not connected to a conflict. Cyberattacks are a weapon sometimes wielded even against nation-states not directly involved in a conflict. Going into 2023 Russia’s war in Ukraine will bring it with cyberthreats. Other nations too, including North Korea, Russia, China and Iran, are likely to raise organizational leaders’ concerns about security.
This panel will look at the current and near-future prospects for geopolitical conflict, including
• The role of cybercriminals in conflicts between nations, such as the Conti and Stormous ransomware groups’ support for Russia in the current Ukrainian conflict;
• How nation-states weaponize cyber-attack skills to increase their power in the world;
• Where CISOs, CEOs, and other organizational leaders should focus security investments to respond to threats issuing from global conflict.
• What tools exist for companies to keep themselves from becoming “casualities” in an international conflict.
