What’s Driving Recent Massive Cyberattacks on Enterprise Companies?

Lately, it seems there’s been an uptick not only in cyberattacks and other network infrastructure breaches, such as the use of ransomware – these attacks also seem to be (successfully) targeting companies of greater and greater stature.

In fact, a long line of juggernauts, from McDonald’s to Volkswagen and the Colonial Pipeline, have fallen victim to data breaches and ransomware attacks.

So, what’s leaving these enterprises so vulnerable, and what can be done about it?

To learn more, Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin was joined for this episode of MarketScaleTV by Jack Blount, CEO of INTRUSION, and Kirat Singh, CEO and Co-founder of Beacon Platform. Each company plays in the enterprise cloud space, with INTRUSION providing an enterprise-level cybersecurity platform and solution and Beacon Platform acting as a developer platform with enterprise-scale elastic cloud infrastructure and automation.

When attacks happen on such a large scale, particularly those involving infrastructure, chaos can result. In the wake of an already disruptive year, this could be leading to an oversized number of slip-ups. The trio also dove into how miscoordination of data security up and down the supply chain, the allure of critical infrastructure for bad actors, and forming a quality cybersecurity strategy that balances proactive measures and quick, efficient and effective reactions when breaches do occur.
