Dale Drew, the CSO of Level 3 covers the following security topics in a conversation with Neil Hughes.

The evolution of the botnet
Botnets are becoming more sophisticated – which means they are becoming harder to detect, track and take down. Dale has some interesting stats around costs to rent botnets and the percentage of internet traffic that is bad/botnet traffc.


The state of healthcare security
Despite breaches increasing in volume and sophistication, only about 1/3 of healthcare organizations are highly concerned over a breach impacting critical care in the next year according to a study conducted by HIMSS Analytics we recently announced.


A few other key takeaways:
Nearly 80 percent of survey participants identified employee security awareness as the source of their greatest concern regarding threat exposure. Respondents identified which systems have the greatest need for network uptime – including those needed to deliver critical care.

The majority of organizations employ multiple risk mitigation practices – and Dale can walk through what those as well as what organizations are looking to do in the next two years.

The big threat for 2017 = Ransomware
Startling recent findings include victims are paying and nearly half of consumers haven’t heard of ransomware.
