The communication, sharing of data, business transactions, or in short, the entire trade and commerce industry is dependent on the network. Though the internet can network and connect the world-at-large, some people may attempt to damage and disrupt these networks repeatedly for various reasons. These attackers violate privacy and intrude internet-connected devices either to retrieve information or to make it inoperable.
The past months have seen some of the most frequent and severe cybersecurity attacks ever recorded against businesses in a variety of industries. As security professionals prepare to handle upcoming network breaches and data security risks, companies must make themselves aware of the latest cyber threats in circulation to ensure their security countermeasures are up to par.
In this webinar, we are identifying the top upcoming network security threats and how your enterprise can stay protected. Beside common types of dangerous networking attacks like malware attacks, ransomware, botnets, drive-by download, phishing, DDoS, crypto-jacking, Man-in-the-middle, and APT threats we are seeing an increasing number of new style attacks targeting IoT and cloud platforms and potentially using ML and AI tools to bypass the defensive protection barriers. As attacks become more sophisticated and as the pressure to protect enterprise systems and data grows significantly the defenders are increasingly implementing Zero Trust as a security concept relying on various existing technologies and governance processes to accomplish its mission of securing the enterprise IT environment.
As enterprises are facing modern cybersecurity issues – including networks that are increasingly cloud-native, with no perimeter and generating huge amounts of data – security experts say the traditional CIA security triad needs a DIE (distributed, immutable and ephemeral) model upgrade that could encourage the approach of security by design and minimize risk.
- Types of network attacks and their stages.
- Learn how to protect your network from these attacks.
- The role of the Red Team when identifying vulnerabilities.
