Malware has been around since the '90s, causing more than $6T in damage. Defenders fight back, so much that the malware analysis market will soon top $20B. Yet, nearly everyone has been a victim of misinformation for much longer, and little is being done to stop it. This session will explore misinformation as the newest cyberthreat and discuss the role that security professionals must play to protect truth.
