Current Internet Threat Landscape - Attacks using Web 2.0
The use of the Internet is constantly changing, as such so is the Internet threat landscape. What used to be a playground for hackers and script kiddies is now a hotbed for organized crime fueled by financial gain. Peter Morin, Information Security Team Lead with Bell Aliant will explore the current threat landscape by highlighting the profile of the newest cyber attackers and examining their latest methods. Peter will address how spammers, phishers, malware developers and hackers are using Web 2.0 technologies to conduct attacks and how we can prepare our infrastructures to better protect our critical business assets.
