History Of Cybersecurity And Hacking

Hacking is not a new concept—it’s been around for as long as humans can remember. With each new technology introduced into society, people and businesses find ways to push it to the edge; getting more done, sometimes in new and exciting ways. Yet, at the same time, cybercriminals and other malicious actors are also pushing these same technologies to their own edge. Most business don’t think of the technologies they use in this way. Most only think of the business benefit they will get from their investment. The issue, of course, is that while they are looking at this innocently from their own perspective, cybercriminals are looking for ways to make a buck of their own. History repeats itself, however, and we can—and should—learn from the past. Join us for this webcast as we look back in time to apply the tried-and-true learnings and best practices to today’s business environment.
