The threat landscape has changed dramatically since the start of the pandemic. Ransomware attacks have sharply increased and shifted in severity from standard to double extortion attacks. As organizations transitioned to a remote workforce, the threat landscape moved into the home, creating a whole host of vulnerabilities. A growing reliance on third parties, including cloud and SaaS services, put access to sensitive data like PII, PHI, and IP outside the corporate firewall. The best way to defend against this new threat landscape is to get in front of these risks. This means security needs to be top of mind all the time.
CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists to share their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, David Levine, VP Corporate and Information Security and CSO for Ricoh USA and Kevin Paige, CISO for Flexport discuss the top threats behind the evolving threat landscape.
