The Evolution of Network Security: How Networks Are Still Getting Hacked 



This presentation will cover how network and internet security is evolving. No matter how big your organization is, the possibility of having your network hacked is now higher than ever. This presentation will discuss how the attack landscape is changing and how large scale cyber-espionage campaigns have been pawning networks for years. People always think of nation-state hacks against large defense contractors, big government offices, and profile financial institutions, but anyone can be a victim. This presentation will also cover how organizations mature in their security strategy to try to maintain a good security posture, but in a lot of cases are unsuccessful.
