Rise of the Breaches

06 Jun 2019, 11:20 - 12:10

Keynote Stage

Infosecurity Hall of Fame Annual Lecture

Data breaches are the new normal. We’ve created ecosystems with so many moving parts and so many complex units, it’s little wonder that we so frequently see them go wrong. A combination of more systems, more people, more devices and more ways than ever of producing and publishing data stack the odds in favour of attackers breaching more systems than ever.

In this talk, you’ll get a look inside the world of data breaches based on my experiences dealing with billions of breached records. You’ll see what’s motivating hackers, how they’re gaining access to data and how organisations are dealing with the aftermath of attacks. Most importantly, it will help you contextualise these incidents and understand both what these attacks actually look like and how to defend against them in your organisation.
