Cyber security is a constant and mounting challenge and attackers are becoming more adept and better equipped. And data breaches are becoming more commonplace.
This presentation will aim to cover the different types of threat actors and provide insight on how those hackers, who have different motivations, use your personal information to monetise in illicit underground markets.
Most of all, it will help you understand how much your privacy is really worth and why you should value it!
