An overview of the people behind major cybercriminal activities, the dark web and how much your data is worth; and finally what basic measures project managers should be putting in place to reduce the cyber-risk profile of their projects. This webinar was held on 15 March 2022.

In today’s data-driven world, data breaches can impact on projects that affect hundreds of millions or even billions of people at a time. Digital transformation has increased the supply of data moving, and data breaches have scaled up with it as attackers exploit the data-dependencies of daily life.

With recent attacks threatening to de-rail high profile projects, it’s vital that the risks are identified and actions implemented, not only to protect project data, but to protect project managers and stakeholders.

Most cybercrime is an attack on information about individuals, corporations, or governments and events can occur in jurisdictions separated by vast distances. The Internet offers criminals multiple hiding places in the real world as well as in the network itself, posing severe problems for law enforcement, since international cooperation is usually required to investigate and attempt to trace down cybercriminals.

But who are these individuals and where exactly does cybercrime take place? What, as project professionals, can we do to protect ourselves?

We look to answer these questions by lifting the veil of hacking and the Dark Web.
