ThreatSTOP CEO discusses cybercrime countermeasures at Securing the Internet of Things forum 4/20
As part of a Masters Panel to analyze and discuss the current cybersecurity landscape, ThreatSTOP CEO Tom Byrnes will share his unique insight and proven solutions to advance trust and privacy for various platforms at this year’s Securing the Internet of Things Forum.
The forum, hosted by CyberTech, is a daylong program at the Terra Gallery in San Francisco on April 20th.
Byrnes plans to address how the proliferation and resourceful efforts of cyber criminals continually outflank even the best defenses despite significant investment.
In the hour-long session, starting at 2:00pm, Byrnes will discuss how “command and control” botnets and malware bypass the most sophisticated defenses, but can be neutralized by a layered approach.
“If the commonality of most malware is that they somehow communicate to an outside source, the best and easiest way to counteract that threat is to prevent it from ‘calling home,’” Byrnes said.
