A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by Akamai
Online fraud and attacks on websites are ongoing and increasing. As more and more people transact online, the attacks on websites, systems and applications only rises year on year. Threat actors are constantly seeking new attack vectors as the sheer number of applications, APIs, and third-party scripts continue to soar.
In fact, cybercriminals in 2021 have an almost limitless arsenal of web attack methods that will not only reduce site availability and performance, but, if successful, cause reputational and financial harm. To complicate matters, most organizations have migrated (or are in the process of migrating) to multi-cloud and hybrid cloud thanks to the accelerated worldwide digital shift. These environments make prevention and protection more complex and difficult to manage.
Security leaders globally know that the cyber skills shortage exasperates the situation with limited resources and somewhat novice operators. Web application and DDoS attacks hit enterprises without warning or reason; potentially exposing confidential data and overtaking website resources for malicious uses, whilst reducing performance and rendering sites unavailable. Organizations are now striving to proactively identify and prevent web attacks to protect their reputation, site availability, site performance, and sensitive proprietary and personal customer data.
So, how do we assess cyber risks in this continually evolving business landscape? How can we continuously monitor and protect our apps and APIs from security attacks, and how can we maintain brand integrity amongst cybercriminal threats?
Join Akamai and a select group of senior thought-leaders to share best practice on how to support business and revenue goals whilst maintaining compliance and security needs, as organizations conquer the challenge of cyber-attacks.
