If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience. Black Hat’s December 2012 webcast will host Jeremiah Grossman, providing an objective analysis of breaches and web security trends in 2012.
Year after year we continue to witness some of the world’s biggest brands in the headlines for security breaches, with what seems no end in sight. And it's not just the Fortune 500 in the cross-hairs; hacktivists, cyber-criminals, and nation-state sponsored attackers have no problem going after anyone and everyone they choose. Some days it's banks. Other days, retailers. Colleges, restaurant chains, technology companies, television networks, state governments, and so on have also been victimized.
Here's the problem: While last year we saw the average number of serious vulnerabilities on websites dropped 66%, showing a glimmer that the open doors for hackers are being closed, the fact of the matter is even just one vulnerability is just as detrimental as 100. This understanding calls for a new way of thinking about defense. Effective defensive is NOT software security perfection, but a strategy that significantly raises the costs of our adversaries to compromise a system with each dollar we invest. In this session, Jeremiah Grossman, CTO and Founder of WhiteHat Security will discuss the key security breaches that’s took place in 2012, the most important new lessons learned, and what it all means for the future of cyber security. Attendees will walk away with an idea of what 2012 research and events meant for security and what we can expect to see in 2013.
