The Cybercrime Crackdown & How it Affects You
Cybercriminals are getting busted– but they’re not going away; they are simply shifting tactics. At the same time, there’s been a surge in proactive cybersecurity legislation and government interest in stemming the tide of cybercrime. In this webinar, we’ll discuss critical cybersecurity trends to watch, including:
- Recent cybercrime crackdowns, including the arrests of the REvil gang, a Trickbot leader, and more, have resulted in shifts in adversary tactics.
- Breach reporting and policy changes are already in the works for financial and healthcare organizations, with legislation pending for broader swaths.
- Privacy regulations are increasing. In 2021 Virginia and Colorado passed privacy legislation, and more than 25% of US states have privacy legislation under consideration.
- California’s upgraded California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) goes into effect in 2023.
- Regulatory agencies are focusing on vulnerability and patch management. Recently, the FTC declared its intent to prosecute companies that do not take steps to mitigate known vulnerabilities.
Join us for a deep dive into the latest trends and ways that all organizations can prepare for change.
