Cyber Security Predictions for 2021


Keeping track of publicly exposed assets is difficult, especially as technology migrates to the cloud, workforces become increasingly distributed, and retail and manufacturing are pushed to sell directly to consumers; all scenarios that have been exacerbated and accelerated by COVID-19. Join our Webinar to discuss the rapid evolution of the Attack Surface, and what CISOs need to do about it.

Why should you attend this webinar?

According to Forrester’s “Predictions 2021: Cybersecurity” report, Retail and manufacturing will have more breaches due to direct-to-consumer shift. As consumer buying habits undergo a massive paradigm shift, brands that once went to market via retailers and distributor supply chains face disruption, forcing them to now sell directly to consumers. While a direct-to-consumer shift was already under way before COVID-19, the pandemic accelerated the timeline. Today, 44% of US online adults get tired of going to several stores to research or buy product, while conversely, 62% had performed an online transaction.

This shift requires companies to expand their attack surface by adding digital storefronts and marketplaces and adopting new engagement models.

Here’s what you’ll learn & how you’ll benefit:

  • Understand how and why the Attack Surface is exploding in size, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic has hit
  • Discuss how CISOs and their organizations are dealing with this explosive growth, and the challenges they are facing
  • Learn how to get a full inventory of your organizations’ assets, how to prioritize risks, and how to remediate them
