Black Hat has grown to be one of the cybersecurity industry’s most well attended and anticipated events. Typically, more than 20,000 attendees converge each year in Las Vegas to learn more about the latest products and technologies, hear from security researchers and keynote speakers, and of course pick up some vendor swag. Due to the pandemic, however, this year looked a little bit different. But different doesn’t necessarily mean it was “bad”; in fact, the Bitdefender team had some interesting takeaways from the show.

This is for an excellent reason — noncompliance can lead to costly fines and the ire of regulators. While it’s likely that focusing on regulatory compliance can incrementally improve security, that shift alone won’t take the organization to the level of security maturity it needs to have to protect against today’s threats such as ransomwar.
Come August, the Bitdefender team – along with some 20K security and InfoSec professionals – will descend on Las Vegas for four days of revelry on and about the latest security risks, research, and trends.
Healthcare providers are operating in a time of extraordinary pressure. Whether it's recovering their operations from a devastating pandemic year or it's the pace that their organization is embracing a rapid digital transformation aimed to optimize and modernize their systems. The last thing healthcare organizations needed this past year was an increase in ransomware and other types of attacks — but that's precisely what they experienced.
