Save the Date: #ISTR Twitter Chat on Symantec Internet Security Threat Report

Join Symantec Security Response experts Kevin Haley and Paul Wood on Twitter (using the #ISTR hashtag) on Tuesday, April 30, at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET to chat about the key trends highlighted in Symantec’s recently released Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR), Volume 18.

The ISTR, which covers the major threat trends observed by Symantec in 2012, reveals a significant increase in cyberespionage attempting to gain access to confidential information and valuable intellectual property, and shows how criminal methods of obtaining this information are shifting. In fact, the largest growth area for targeted attacks in 2012 was businesses with fewer than 250 employees; 31 percent of all attacks targeted them, representing a threefold increase from 2011.

Mark your calendars to join the #ISTR chat and plan to discuss the latest attack vectors and techniques used by cybercriminals to gain access to your intellectual property.
