It's a Digital Transformers takeover of the Supply Chain Buzz for November 15, produced in partnership with TNS - and with good reason! According to cybersecurity firm Kaspersky, DDoS attacks have increased by 24% in the past year, while smart DDoS attacks increased by 31%. That's a big problem for supply chains big and small, particularly as digital transformation efforts widen the network of third-party providers and IoT endpoints (that double nicely as attack vectors). In this livestream, co-hosts Scott and Kevin tackle the topic of cybersecurity with a little help from featured guest Richard Hummel, Manager of Threat Intelligence at NETSCOUT. Join this dynamic trio as they break down the increasing speed and bandwidth of DDos attacks, new, more targeted ransomware strategies, the intricate web of entities impacted by supply chain vulnerabilities - and the shift to manufacturing firms as the latest target of cyber attacks. You'll learn new terms like "honeypot," get actionable strategies for safeguarding your network - and find out how you can get timely updates on the threat landscape from NETSCOUT.
