Web Conference Overview:What makes a piece of software a cyber weapon? Companies and governments are buying exploit code to test their own systems and controls or to use against their enemies. What makes this software a cyber weapon and where do we go from here? Will the sale of exploit code be regulated or prohibited for certain buyers? How do we protect our businesses from these exploits when they are being sold privately to the richest bidder? Join us as we explore this debate and discuss what we can do to protect ourselves and our organizations.
