Webinar | The New Normal: Disruptive and Destructive Cyberattacks

This year, we have seen global cyberattacks targeting critical infrastructure in multiple countries and across hundreds of thousands of computers. Cybersecurity experts assess that many of these attacks were conducted by nation-states attempting to disrupt victims’ operations and destroy data, rather than profit-seeking criminals. In this webinar, we will review a number of the most recent cyberattacks, including Petya and WannaCry, as well as the breaches at several nuclear power plants in the United States, and assess the impacts of such attacks.
