2018 was worse than 2017 for cyber security. This year every month was filled with even more major breaches, hacks, and attacks surfacing then 2017. The nature and range of the attacks varied from email hacking to zero days, from minor incursions to (potentially) everyone’s data being stolen. 2018 will probably go down as the new worst year for Cyber Security with all the previous year’s events having been far surpassed. Even our doom and gloom or same old same old predictions of last year have been blown away. The question now, will 2019 bear the full weight and impact of the events of 2019, or will it have its own harrowing events. Will the growing impact and occurrences spotlight security and translate in terms of media and regulatory attention? What kinds of threats will dominate the 2019 landscape?
Join us, make notes, and then check back in a year to see how our panel of experts did in providing insight and making predictions for the 2019 challenges to InfoSec.
