The cost of cyberattacks in the US varies from a few Million to Billions of dollars per year and reach; problem is nobody knows for sure because many companies are embarrassed to report such crimes. According to IBM Security Services, there were 1.5 million cyber-attacks in the United States in 2016, with nearly 40% of those attacks were motivated by industrial espionage, terrorism, financial crimes, data theft, or dissatisfaction with employers. 

2016 has been a challenging year for politics, public safety, individuals and companies in terms of online security.  Unwanted attacks became more sophisticated, difficult to find and extremely expensive to correct.  Win32/Conflicker, WannaCry, Cloak and Dagger, Botnets and thousands more are responsible for significant data and financial loss. 

2017 will ‘see’ and experience in increase in attacks and sophistication; predictions and trends for the future are discussed in this webinar:

  • Symantec
  • Trend Micro
  • McAfee
  • Forcepoint
  • FireEye
  • Kaspersky
