Topic:  Cybercrime and the Threat Landscape
Cybercrime continues to target organizations large and small. Proofpoint has a view into billions of messages a day, 260,000 daily malware samples, and mass amounts of in-the-wild network data. Come learn what the data tells us about the threat landscape, what and who is targeting you, and what’s coming up next. Hint: it’s about cryptocurrency.  This session will be an informative and entertaining look into social engineering, banking trojans, ransomware, and credential stealing that uses real world data from Proofpoint’s vast data stores to look back on what we’ve seen and make predictions about what we might see next.
