According to the World Economic Forum’s 2018 Global Risk Report, cyber attacks against businesses have more than doubled in five years, from 68 per business in 2012 to 130 per business in 2017. In fact, according to the world's leading researcher covering the global cyber economy, we will soon experience the greatest transfer of wealth in the history of mankind – from the pockets of individuals and businesses to the fists of cybercriminals around the world. Acknowledging the potentially devastating impact of cyber crimes on individuals, families, and businesses, Bank of America – Merrill Lynch is offering a series of educational conferences titled "The Impact of Cyber Threats on You and Your Business", which will include cybersecurity experts from Bank of America and other related fields.
Cybersecurity expert Brad Deflin’s presentation, "Cybersecurity — An Issue for the Boardroom, Break Room, and Living Room," will empower the audience with the knowledge required for protection of their online privacy and personal data, and with an understanding of the emerging innovations in technology designed to keep them secure, safe and in control of their personal information. Mr. Deflin will discuss topics such as the regulatory aspects of information sharing, virtual private networks and encryption, device protection and monitoring, and offer guidance in how to quickly detect and deter all forms of cyber crime, including ransomware, cyber blackmail, denial of service attacks, IoT hacking, social engineering, pretexting, brute-force attacks, mobile hijacking, cloud cracking and insider theft.
