Corey Nachreiner, CTO at network security company WatchGuard Technologies, and Marc Laliberte, a senior security analyst at WatchGuard join me on the Tech Talks Daily Podcast. Corey and Marc discuss the state of the security market and share their security predictions, including prominent attacks and infosec trends that the WatchGuard Threat Lab research team believes will emerge this year.
I learn more about the tidal wave of automated spear-phishing campaigns, how hackers are infesting home networks with worms, and how attackers are swarming VPNs and RDPs as the remote workforce grows. We also discuss the key steps organizations can take to improve their security posture.
