Modern Cyber Risks for 2024

Thursday, April 11 | 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.

CLA speaker: Randy Romes

The pace of cyber fraud and the number of breaches hitting the headlines has not diminished. This session will explore the current state of cyber threats, detailing how attackers progress from your social media and online exposure, through phishing and account compromises to data breaches, data theft and ransomware. We will discuss attacker motivations, common “low hanging fruit,” and strategies prevent intrusions where we can, and mitigate the impact of intrusions or breaches when they occur. We will review case studies and “in the news” examples from the last 24 months that had significant impact on businesses. Throughout the session we will examine root causes leading to breaches, and mitigation strategies to minimize likelihood and impact.
