Cyber Security - The Cyber Threat is Increasing

We see an increasingly complex cyber threat, including in the grey zone of both nation states and private sector offensive actors (PSOAs). The Solarwinds attack on government and the attack on Colonial Pipeline which virtually shut down the gas supply to the US East Coast, are only two  recent examples. This context continues to raise fears about what companies can do to protect themselves.  

Coalitions will be crucial to tackling the cyber threat in this context: both internationally, as well as between public and private sectors. There are also important steps that everyone can take that make a big difference. Join us for a roundtable discussion about the trends in cyber warfare the industry is seeing, the typical types of attack most prevalent, and the action companies can take.
