Cybersecurity & Risk

As any cybersecurity professional knows, bad actors are motivated for a variety of reasons. Whether it be a disgruntled employee seeking revenge or an experienced hacker practicing ransomware, understanding their motivations will help IT professionals create a more robust cybersecurity infrastructure.

The speaker in this session examines what motivates cyber criminals and explores the top three merchant vulnerabilities.
