What Got Us Here (May) Get Us There: 2021 Potential Trends From Over a Decade of DBIR Reporting

Thursday, December 17, 2020

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST

60 minutes, including Q&A

The Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) has been a staple in security reporting for over a decade, always aiming to both document and inform on the current shape of the security threat landscape. It has also been a cathartic outlet of bad jokes and puns for the authoring team.

While the main purpose of the report is to examine what has recently (and not so recently) occurred, it has become clear to the team that over time attackers will attempt to maximize their Attack Return on Investment (AROI). While we can't tell you what the Next Big Attack (tm) will be in 2021, we'll delve into what the data suggests will define it and help to prepare for it.

Join us on a critical analysis of over a decade of alternating very stale and surprising trends, and learn how to better strategize in a landscape that changes very slowly at first and then suddenly all at once.
