Challenging the Threat

Australia & Singapore Threat Report


Stop press: there’s bad guys out there, and they are looking to break into your computer systems and steal your data. But you knew that, right?

More interesting is that different countries can face very different threats. In this webinar, we’re going to be speaking to Carbon Black about their latest cybersecurity research data, looking at global trends and drilling into two specific countries, with findings such as:

Singapore businesses are facing a dramatically escalating threat environment where attack volumes have grown exponentially in the last 12 months. In particular, Singapore’s strong government and local authority sector is proving an attractive target for cybercriminals, with CIO/CTO/CISOs in this sector reporting significantly elevated attack frequency.

In Australia, businesses are battling a sustained threat environment where attacks continue to grow in sophistication and complexity, making breaches an all but inevitable consequence. 97% of Australian organizations participating in the study said they have suffered one or more breaches in the past 12 months due to external cyberattacks.

But there’s more. A threat is only a threat if it isn’t challenged, so we’re looking to go beyond attacker behaviours and pose the question, what are organizations doing to defend themselves against the risks, from both a tooling and process perspective.

We’re going to be asking what differentiates our focus countries, what to do in response and overall, how to set priorities, keep current and plan for whatever is around the corner.

So, if you want to know what’s going on, but what to do about it, tune in.
