This week I am honoured to be part of an informative interactive panel discussion with Miranda Mears, Paul Russell and our host Caitlin Baumann from Business Queensland.
During the session I will share stories about the seven bad actors and how to protect against them:
Identity Thieves: Crafty individuals who aim to steal and misuse personal and financial information for their gain.
Foreign Intruders: Hackers from around the globe seeking unauthorised access to sensitive company data.
Extortionists: Criminals who use threats to blackmail companies for financial or personal gain.
Blackmailers: Individuals or groups that attempt to tarnish a business's or individual’s reputation with sensitive information.
Terrorists: Groups or individuals who use digital means to create fear, chaos, or disrupt operations.
Bad Apples: Disgruntled employees with access to confidential information who might act against the interests of their employer.
Rotten Eggs: Individuals or insiders who intentionally sabotage their organisation.
Understanding the tactics and strategies employed by these 'bad actors' is paramount in defending against cyber threats.
With the increasing reliance on digital platforms and the importance of securing sensitive information, knowing about the seven bad actors can't be underestimated.
