Everything from banking to transportation is becoming digitally connected. Our world is quickly going online. This is a hugely positive development but it also means that computer viruses, digital surveillance, information theft and service outages have more impact than ever before.
And you and your business could suffer!
The annual global cost of cybercrime is set to grow from $3 trillion in 2015 to $6 trillion by 2021.
In many ways it’s also becoming harder to deal with these threats. A wider range of devices can now be infected or co-opted including workstations and laptops, but also smartphones, wearables and smart devices. Cybercrime syndicates are able to fund the development of new viruses. Many governments are also putting their efforts into digitally spying on their citizens and even engaging in cyber warfare.
Luckily, there are people fighting back against these threats.
One of the leading experts keeping the internet safe is Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Office at Finland’s F-Secure Corporation. He leads a team that helps keep the internet safe and open by discovering malware outbreaks and vulnerabilities, and bringing down botnets.
Mikko is on the cutting edge of malware research and he’ll be sharing his findings at WHD.global on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 with his presentation, “The Digital Battle Against Extortionists, Scammers, Terrorists, and Spies in a World that’s Gone Online”. You’ll get an insider’s look at what the next killer virus will look like and how you can prepare for it.
