Webinar: How to Protect Against Evolving Cybercrime

Posted by Emmanuel Marshall on 30 November 2017 11:02:42 AEDT

Free Webinar from Microsoft

Cybercrime is impacting 9 out of 10 businesses. According to a recent study by
PwC, it is the number one economic crime in Australia, and number two globally. This is a risk management challenge of huge proportions.

We have seen high-profile outbreaks like NotPetya, WannaCry and BadRabbit impact businesses globally, and devastating data breach incidents like the Equifax scandal.

What we don’t often hear about is how these massive data breaches happen. The sobering truth is that large-scale data breaches can be instigated through simple email fraud.

In his keynote address at Microsoft Inspire in July, Brad Smith - Microsoft President and CLO - called the rise of cybercrime a wake-up call.

“Cybersecurity is global in scope and paramount in importance. What we’ve learned is that 90% of all security intrusions start the same way, with an email and a link that takes somebody to a harmful website. Every company has at least one employee who will click on anything, and that is pretty hard to protect against.” - Brad Smith - President, Microsoft.
