Foregenix Live Hack taking centre stage at Mastercard Innovation Forum

25/09/18 13:38

Hollywood has painted the world of hacking as a slick, complex, world of nation state attackers using undetectable, 0-day attacks against large corporate organisations. Whilst sometimes that's exactly the case, most of the time it's not like that at all. We’re seeing focused and organised criminal groups performing exploits of often very old vulnerabilities against smaller companies and merchants.

Everyday there's another data compromise. Check the news, big breaches are happening all the time - and that's just the high profile ones. It's the smaller businesses that are getting hit the hardest by hackers; we see it day in and day out. Online criminals target websites operating a weak security infrastructure and exploit their vulnerabilities once identified. Why would they work hard to break into a big bank, when they could spend an hour hacking a small business?
