HHS Webinar: Do robots dream of cyber attacks?

Wednesday Oct 4, 2023
11:00am - 12:00pm CDT


Bad guys live forever, and they adapt and become legends. The threat landscape has completely changed. In the last twelve months, we have seen supply chain attacks, an increase in ransomware (with an explosion of cryptocurrency value), and a dedication from attackers against industrial control and IoT systems. Attackers use more sophisticated methods for cybercrime, hacking, and disruption strategies.
We will explore behind the curtain and show the techniques of how attackers use technology to attack systems, social engineering, and bypass security defense solutions.

We are now studying, working, communicating, and interacting in ways different than before, and attackers are taking advantage of post-pandemic lifestyles. Attackers are targeting VPNs remote desktop systems, growing more advanced with phishing attacks, targeting home-based IoT systems, remote conferencing applications, and gaming systems.
