Is Malware the New Weapon of Mass Destruction?

Posted on in Presentations

Is malware the new weapon of mass destruction: US elections, Ukraine power outages, WannaCry. Cyberattacks are becoming more frequent and blamed on nation-states. Can we, and are we, doing enough to stop them? We will explore whether the latest attacks and research demonstrate a change in how malware is being used in reality, by states and cybercriminals. Will it change our view of security?

Learning Objectives:
1: Explore an alternate view on media stories about malware.
2: Examine the future of malware and explore whether the perception of risk will change.
3: Leave with something to think about.
