Keynote: Three Threats That Should be Keeping You Awake at Night

Graham Cluley

Graham Cluley Cybercrime Researcher Independent

If you're losing sleep over state-sponsored attackers you're approaching things the wrong way.  Yes, intelligence agencies are hacking some firms, but chances are that they're not interested in yours.

Financially-motivated hacks and frauds are on the rise because it has become so easy for attackers to steal large amounts of money.  And there's no need for criminals to know how to write malware to potentially steal millions from your business.

Graham Cluley describes the ways businesses are losing data and allowing fraudsters to steal sometimes vast amounts of money, and what you can do to reduce the chances of your firm being the next victim.
