Late 2016 and throughout 2017 we saw attacks on Krebs, OVH and Dyn by the IoT botnet known as Mirai. Mirai was neither the first nor the most sophisticated IoT botnet, but it was highly effective in taking down its targets. These attacks represented a milestone in IoT botnet and DDoS history and served as a wakeup call to anyone responsible for safeguarding networks, systems and data.

The success of Mirai has also accelerated the IoT threat, as well as forever changed the threat landscape as a whole. Not only do we have botnets enslaving IoT devices for criminal activity, but we also have vigilante botnets designed to purposefully kill infected devices.

Join our experts as we dive into the threatscape of IoT and discuss what’s currently happening and what we need to be prepared for in the future.

Be sure to include your questions during registration so our presenters can address your concerns during the webcast. CPE credit is available.
