Why Has 2019 Already Been the Worst Year for Cyberattacks?

October 2, 2019 Arctic Wolf Networks

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, this comes as no surprise: 2019 has been the worst year yet in terms of cyberattacks and data breaches. Over the summer we wrote about a number of devastating attacks, most notably those suffered by blood-testing giants LabCorps and Quest Diagnostics, a coordinated strike against more than 20 Texas municipalities, and the CapitalOne breach that affected more than one-hundred million individuals. That one was so bad we explored what happened there not once, but twice.

Data breaches affect organizations large and small, across all industries, located anywhere in the world. Cyberattacks are no longer a question of “if” but “when?” The answer, however, lies not in the date and time but in how your business prepares to respond in the face of an attack. And despite these recent breaches and a threat landscape of increasing sophistication, there are measures your organization can take to stay protected—including lessons from the 2019 attacks that will enhance your cybersecurity posture.

Arctic Wolf Product Marketing Manager Louis Evans will go into the details of what befell CapitalOne, LabCorp, and the others in next week’s webinar “2019 Data Breaches: What We’ve Learned from the Worst Year in Cybersecurity.” Attendees to the event will discover:

  • Why these breached organizations were vulnerable to cyberattacks
  • What techniques cybercriminals currently use to access systems and steal valuable data
  • What lessons your organization can take from recent attacks to avoid becoming a target

Don’t be the next victim—sign up here for the October 9 webinar and find out how to better protect your organization.
