Applied Technology Institute (ATI Courses) offers Cyber Warfare – Global Trends course which will be offered on June 18-20, 2013 in Columbia, MD.  This course is highly relevant according to the 6th annual Deloitte Cyber Security Survey. Why? Consider this:
  • Recently, there was a hack and theft of more than 250,000 Twitter user passwords
  • Hackers recently got into Facebook. However, they did not steal any information belonging to the social media site’s 1 billion worldwide users. What happened was that some employees visited a mobile software developer’s site which led to malware getting installed their laptops.
Everyone is trying to prevent cyber-attacks including heads of state. Nonetheless, a recent study by consulting firm Deloitte’s sixth annual Cyber Security Survey suggests that any organisation is at risk of a security breach. Citing the fact that most passwords can be cracked in five hours, a statement made by a Deloitte technology risk leader says that every business has to assume a breach will occur. As a result, detection and response planning procedures are an absolute necessity. Among areas cited as threats were:
  • Third-party breaches: 59 percent of the study participants experienced security breaches in 2012.
  • BYOD (Bring Your Own Device): 74 percent of study respondents cited this as one of their biggest risks but only 52% had BYOD security policies in place.
  • Hacktivisim: Hacktivisim was mentioned in the survey for the first time with 63% of the respondents noting it as a major concern.
Just 40 percent of the respondents stated that they collect data about cyber-attacks that specifically target their industry, brand, organisation or customers. Register for ATI’s Cyber Warfare – Global Trends today and learn how to protect yourself and your organization against future cyber attacks! There may be no such thing as hacker-proof, but there’s a chance to reduce your cyber beacon, be less inviting to attack, and proactively establish measures around your most valued assets.
