Modern state of insecurity                             varonis logo.jpg

Online security is in a constant state of flux; we face threats today that are entirely new to those we dealt with only a year or two ago. Yet at the same time, we’re still dealing with the same fundamental threats we were decades ago with the likes of SQL injection and ransomware dating as far back as the 80’s. This dichotomy also plays out in the sophistication of attacks we’re seeing today with news headlines announcing nation state backed espionage with equal regularity to Amazon S3 buckets exposing everything to the public due to simple configuration errors.
 In this talk, you’ll see how these threats are evolving and which are the ones we need to be especially conscious of in the modern era. It looks at real world examples of both current and emerging threats and talks about actionable steps we need to take as an industry to stem the flow of data breaches and other malicious activity. The Modern State of Insecurity is a scary yet necessary lesson on how we’re still getting security wrong today.
