From the humble beginnings of a badly written email, claiming to be a deposed royal with millions of dollars to transfer into your bank account, cyber criminals have evolved their tactics, techniques and procedures. They are now much more professional in their approach and have been focussing their attention on data. Whether encrypting it with Ransomware or stealing it and threatening to publish it publicly, they know that data is highly valuable to businesses.
With enterprising entrepreneurs developing platforms and applications, leveraging technologies like AI, machine learning and the blockchain for the Web3 world, the cyber criminals are watching and waiting. But these people are opportunists. If they find something was built with security in mind and is difficult to compromise, they will move on and look for an easier target.
It's also crucial for all organisations to ensure that they are compliant with the various legislations in the different jurisdictions that they intend operating in, so having some best practice measures in place can help address these requirements.
In this lunch and learn session, Liam will talk about:
Considerations for developing secure applications
Data protection factors for start-ups
Understanding the current cyber risks facing organisations
