The Economics of Cybercrime and Measuring the Ripple Effect of the Breach
Ransomware attackers earned an estimated $465 million in profit in 2021 - up 33% from 2020. Meanwhile, the meantime between intrusion and detection - dwell time - was measured at an unsettling 56 days.

Oh, and meanwhile: There were roughly 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by the end of 2021, and 82% of surveyed organizations reported a shortage of cybersecurity skills.

These numbers deliver two messages: It is economically rational for attackers to keep attacking, and skills-strapped enterprises increasingly need outside help to improve visibility, detection and incident response.

Join our roundtable discussion to learn more about the economics of cybercrime, the cascading effect of breaches and how you can improve both incident preparation and recovery.

Discussion topics will include:

  • The most prevalent cyberattacks - and why they are profitable
  • How to measure the long-term impact of a breach
  • How to leverage the right skills and tools to improve visibility, detection and response

Join Steven Baer, VP - Field CTO - Americas for event sponsor Trustwave, to gain his unique insight on cybercrime trends and economics, and come away with strategies you can implement today to improve your organization's ability to detect and respond to the onslaught of attacks.
