Hardik Modi, Senior Director, Threat Intelligence, NETSCOUT & Jessica Gulick, CEO, Katzcy & VP, Women's Society of Cyberjutsu
It’s hard to express the scale of today’s cyber threat landscape, let alone its global impact. We can tell you that there were nearly four million DDoS attacks around the world in the last six months, and that attack frequency grew by 39 percent. Or that the NETSCOUT ASERT team saw 20,000 unique samples per month from just one family of IoT malware. Or even that it can take only five days from the discovery of a new attack vector to the availability of tools for the script-kiddie designed to exploit that vulnerability.
These numbers, while startling, don’t fully convey the impact of that steady drumbeat of new threats. Cybercrime has entered the mainstream of our culture to an unprecedented extent, and it is here to stay.
