Presentation: Symantec Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR) 2019, Volume 24 

Speaker: Scott Parker – Sr Principal Systems Engineer, Symantec Corporation

Abstract: I’m thrilled to share that Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR) 2019, Vol. 24 has been released! If you’re not familiar with the report, it’s a crown jewel of intelligence Symantec publishes each year, which provides an overview and analysis of the year in global threat activity. The report is based on intel from the world’s largest civilian threat network, including our 123 million sensors which record thousands of threat events per second from 157 countries and block 142 million threats daily.

The 2019 Internet Security Threat Report takes a deep dive into the latest trends in cyber security attacks, including:
– Formjacking: The Breakthrough Threat of 2018
– Living Off the Land Attacks and Supply Chain Weaknesses are Here to Stay
– Cryptojacking Down, But Certainly Not Out
– Cloud Security is Organizations’ Achilles Heel
– IoT in the Crosshairs of Cyber Criminals and Attack Groups


Bio: Scott has been with Symantec for almost 20 years and is an Information Systems Security Association Distinguished Fellow with over 30 years of tactical and strategic information security experience across multiple control points – data centers, endpoints, and gateways with a focus on threat protection, information protection, cyber security services and security analytics.
