Session Seven2:00 pm - 2:45 pm
“Cyber-enabled” crimes pose a growing risk to our community and global economy. With the expansion of cyberspace, threat actors have refined their attack methodologies to exploit a greater number of threat vectors. Unfortunately, subsequent indicators of compromise go unrecognized and unreported, which further increases risks of exposure to organizations. Despite ongoing intelligence information sharing initiatives, there still remains an increased lack of collaboration among stakeholders. This a community based problem requiring “community based solutions.”
