Cybersecurity Webinar Series
Part 1 - Surviving a destructive nation-state cyber-attack and a look at what the digital future holds
Part 1 in the Sterling Cybersecurity Webinar Series took place on Tuesday, April 27th 2021. Recording coming soon!
The average cost of a cyber breach is $3.68 million. It’s not a matter of “if” and it’s not a matter of “when”; it is whether you will survive the cyber-attack. Since the early days of the pandemic, we’ve seen an accelerated and unprecedented digital transformation that would’ve taken years but instead happened in months or even weeks.
Have you looked ahead at what safeguards will be needed to counter the emerging threats? Can you guarantee the security of your data? Our dependency on the digital economy is irreversible. The systemic risk we face includes vulnerabilities to all things connected.
Industry thought-leaders Stevan Bernard, former Executive Vice President of Sony Pictures; Chris Cyr, Sterling CTO; and Jeff Moore, Sterling Senior VP of Business Development and Contracts, take a look at cybersecurity past, present, and future:
• Sony Pictures’ story of surviving North Korean cyber-attacks
• Present global-scale threats and dark-web risks
• Importance of a secure supply chain
• Future threatscape
• The proactive approach your organizations can take
