Mr. Shrenik gave some quick insights to the partners present at the event about the global cybersecurity threat landscape. He spoke about the malware explosion which was around 117 million attacks in 2017. The various attacks that were huge in 2017 were discussed, the massive outbreak of Wannacry Ransomware and Ex Petr and that the cybercrime in 2017 cost $600 billion globally.
