New Year, New Cyberthreats: What’s in Store for 2015? January #SecChat

Unfortunately, the good guys aren’t the only ones with resolutions for the New Year. From cyber espionage to increasingly unforgiving ransomware, non-Windows malware to attacks on the Internet of Things—new and evolving cyberthreats are expected to surface rapidly in 2015.

Join us for a discussion of the current and upcoming cyberthreat landscape, and the ways in which we can prepare for the latest threats before they strike.

During our January #SecChat, we’ll discuss key findings and predictions from the McAfee Labs Threats Report, November 2014. Through this discussion, we hope to spark an insightful conversation around threats in the New Year, and how organizations can take action to prepare against those threats. Joining us for this #SecChat will be some of most senior threat researchers in McAfee Labs; they will provide valuable insights on their 2015 threat predictions. We look forward to your predictions as well.

Intel Security #SecChats are held in an open forum. We seek to foster conversation with participants on pressing issues facing the information security community. During the discussion, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and contribute their own insights on the 2015 threat predictions highlighted in the McAfee Labs Threats Report.
