2017 was a horrendous year in cyber security every month was filled with major breaches, hacks, and attacks surfacing. The nature and range of the attacks varied from email hacking to recently announced vulnerabilities being exploited, from minor incursions to (potentially) everyone’s financial history being stolen. 2017 will probably go down as the 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 2018 bear the full weight and impact of the events of 2017, 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 2018 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 2018 challenges to InfoSec.
