Event Description

Per the Juniper research, Cybercriminals will steal an estimated 33 billion records by 2023 which is around 12 billion+ records in 2018. Records include confidential personal and financial information, confidential government documents and corporate documents. Out of total attacks in the world, 38% are targeted in United States alone and the cost of average data breach comes out to be $7.91 million in addition to the lost piece of mind. 

The seminar is intended to educate the participants about the cyber security with its ins and outs.
