About this talk

It plays out over and over after a major cybersecurity breach makes headlines. Questions are asked: Why was the victim organization vulnerable? Could this have been avoided? What did they do wrong? What policies do they need to change? Who should be held responsible? In most cases, the spotlight only peripherally touches on the attacker. On April 29, 2021 at 1:00PM Eastern, (ISC)2 will bring together a panel of cybersecurity leaders to discuss why our first reaction is to blame the victim, rather than examining the threat ecosystem, how many attacks have already been thwarted and where the true blame should reside.
