PRLog - Sep. 2, 2014 - LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. -- LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 28 August 2014 -- The Russian crime ring CyberVog last month made cybersecurity history by amassing the largest known collection of stolen Internet credentials, including 1.2 billion user name and password combinations and more than 500 million email addresses. But surprisingly, such major data thefts may not be the most frightening security threats we face.

Which security threats this year have been the scariest? IEEE Computer Society has created a quick quiz to see how the public's rankings compare to the experts when they gather for the Top 10 Scariest Security Threats Google Hangout on Monday, September 8 at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern. Rankings can be submitted at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/take-the-quiz (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/take-the-quiz) until Tuesday, Sept. 2.

During the Hangout, panelists Josh Greenbaum, Principal of Enterprise Applications Consulting; Sarath Geethakumar, Senior Director – Global Information Security, VISA; and Will Hurley, Co-founder, Chaotic Moon Studios; will discuss the 10 top security threats of the past year, and their impact and implications for establishing company security. The panelists will share their perspectives and offer insights into how companies can keep their data—and customers' data—out of the hands of cyberthieves.
