In-depth Analysis of Recent Data Breaches
Many of the famous security events in 2017 and 2018 were data breaches. A data breach is more than a regular security incident which compromises the integrity, confidentiality, or availability of data, instead it is a confirmed access from an unauthorized third party to sensitive data.

This talk will provide an overview of some of the most prominent data breaches in 2017 – 2018 broken down by industry sector. But we will not only talk about these breaches, we will analyze in depth how the breaches occurred, what was the root cause, and will provide some pragmatic best-practice measures to reduce the risk around similar data breaches.
