ONG-ISAC & Fortinet Webinar

Title: Threat Intelligence Roundup | Emerging Trends Impacting the Year Ahead

Abstract:

The threat landscape is growing increasingly sophisticated by the day. For example, the number of unique detections observed in the wild by FortiGuard Labs has risen 68% in the last five years. As a result, working together is more critical than ever. This is especially true as rapidly advancing technologies, geopolitical events, and an emerging economic crisis add new layers of complexity as we strive to defend against our adversaries. Adversaries continue to adapt their techniques and execute more sophisticated attacks, posing significant risks to businesses of all shapes and sizes. Ransomware variants, phishing emails, wiper malware, and more show up as tactics used to disrupt operational environments. As digital transformation increases the number of users, devices, and applications connecting to the network. During this webinar, security strategist Aamir Lakani will discuss what the new year will bring as new threats emerge, old threats are recycled with new techniques and the threat landscape continues to expand.
