When big businesses are breached they make the news and there's lots of attention and scrutiny given to what happened, how the company reacted and what they could have done better. But not every business is big and even relatively small breaches can have a massive impact on a business. 

Recent law changes such as the introduction of the Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) legislation has put the spotlight on the leaking of personal information. But those attacks aren't the only ones businesses need to be aware of. 

Kaspersky Lab has seen the impact of Advanced Persistent Threats, or APTs, on businesses. As our businesses develop new technologies to stay ahead of their competition, threat actors do the same as they endeavour to break into corporate systems and networks by using new attack vectors and methods. And that's on top of the known threats like spam-borne malware, ransomware and other established methods.

In Australia, we often think we're far away from many of these new risks but Kaspersky Lab will highlight that Australian business large and small are a major target and that APTs are part of a targeted strategy employed by criminals and not opportunistic attacks. 

This exclusive breakfast briefing will also look at the challenges posed by hybrid cloud environments. 

Kaspersky Lab will be joined by IDC's Simon Piff and other industry speakers where these challenges will be discussed and you'll be able to walk away with a clear understanding of:

  • What the most significant threats to your business are
  • What you can do about them
  • How you can build a security culture of security that extends from the executive down to the end user
  • What other threats do companies and executives need to be aware of, and how can they be addressed?

 By the time breakfast is complete and you're on your way to the office you will have a better understanding of your own vulnerabilities and what you can do about them.
