With the ‘Internet of Things’ firmly embedded as the one of the key information security topics of 2014 (confirmed by Google’s Nest Labs acquisition), technology’s ability to impact businesses physically has turned commonly accepted threats to client data and the consequent reputational damages on their head.
Implications of a security breach now include (at their most extreme) disrupted national infrastructure, international operations, lost Intellectual Property (IP) and even threats to physical safety. Cybercrime is now serious and organised - perpetrated on a national and international level. In the very worst case scenario, cybercrime can completely undermine confidence in the integrity of the UK government and economy’s technology and sensitive systems.
In light of this pervasive threat landscape, this webinar will:
- Examine how businesses need to change their security testing strategy in order to educate and prepare
- Look at what the information security industry can do to help businesses effectively target security efforts to defend their most valuable and vulnerable information and systems
- Explore how the evolving ‘Internet of Things’ is creating multiple access points into a company’s network and advise on how new and developing threats can be tested
- Introduce IMPACT testing
