Cybersecurity in the context of international security

    LOCATION: Virtual

    Cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility.

    What are the current trends in security threats, risks, and vulnerabilities? How do threat actors exploit vulnerabilities to launch ransomware attacks? Join to understand Cyberspace as an operational environment and what to do about threats, risks, and vulnerabilities.

    Cyberspace: hardware and software used to create, process, store, retrieve, and disseminate information in different types of interconnected networks that make up a large, global network, built and used by humans, has transformed all aspects of human life. It allows information to flow at unprecedented speeds; it creates value through e-commerce; it streamlines business value creation processes, and it enables command and control of capabilities to manage crises or conduct joint operations. However, threat actors identify and exploit vulnerabilities to launch cyberattacks against institutions in academia, the public and private sectors. Motives can be intellectual property theft (knowledge), espionage, sabotage, or cybercrime reasons. Many cases in favor of this concept exist: WannaCry, NotPetya, and REvil. Therefore, with an understanding of Cyberspace as the operating environment, participants will understand the threats, risks, security holes and what to do about them.
