FBI IC3 has recorded cybercrime activity quadrupling over the last few months, 3,000-4,000 attacks daily, with only some of it being COVID themed. According to Accenture, 43% of cyberattacks in 2019 were aimed at small business, but only 14% are prepared to defend themselves. More than half of all small businesses suffered a breach in 2019. The panel will explore the uniqueness of cyber risk, cyberattack vectors, and guidance for private companies on shifting from threat response to threat prevention.
