Cybersecurity Awareness Discussion: An Assessment of the Global Threat

Session Description:  The state of today's enterprise security practices varies wildly in terms of effectiveness in warding off increasingly aggressive and technologically creative cybercriminals. Security infrastructures are under resourced and under-implemented, with little ongoing consideration being given to the alignment between holistic security and effective IT functionality.

As security experts, it is our job to stop this, but it's clear that our current processes are having little impact on the continued growth of criminal activity. This has created fertile ground for the efforts of criminals. As a result, we are seeing an explosive growth in the frequency and reach of cybercrime around the world. In this presentation, NTT will discuss what is happening with the threat today and what to expect for tomorrow and how we, as the defense against cybercrime, need to evolve and spend our limited resources and investment to meet the shifting challenge.
