Since the 1990’s, data entry-based attacks have been utilized to social engineer credentials from users for network access. There was a period of time when they were forgotten or overlooked by information security teams due to the prevalence of Trojans, worms, DDoS, and other malware attacks. Well, data entry attacks are back in fashion as reported in recent high-profile breaches. This session will provide some history, highlight examples, and demonstrate the latest techniques to develop and detect data entry-based phishing attacks.

Ransomware campaigns continue to evolve. Organizations can defend their business with intelligence that uncovers the tactics attackers are leveraging to inflict harm. At the same time, your employees are a valuable resource in defending against ransomware and provide security teams with useful information to take proactive measures. Security leaders and their teams are challenged with doing more with less. Integrated solutions and automation to fight ransomware enables analysts to be more efficient and accurate in the operation.
Join PhishMe and Recorded Future as they uncover the latest ransomware campaigns and how employees and analysts play an important role in defending the enterprise.
• What are researchers and other companies seeing as part of the threat landscape?
• What can teams do to protect and respond and what resources do you need to prepare?
• What are the benefits of integrating tools together and how can this help you?
No matter how quickly you’re detecting and responding to breaches, it’s still not fast enough for your customers’ and clients’ peace of mind. Even companies with the best solution in place are only doing half the job. The other half? Training your people.
The average time to find and respond to a breach?
147 days. (That’s not a typo.)
So, how do you get your organization better – and faster? And how do you train and empower your employees to do better than 147 days? In this presentation, we will explore how to harness the common detection techniques used by prairie dogs (yes, prairie dogs) and lessons we can learn from them in the domain of cyber security. HINT? It’s called Collective Security.
Prairie dog calls contain specific information as to what the predator is, how big it is and how fast it is approaching.

Ransomware was the #1 cybersecurity threat in 2016. Phishing continues to thrive as the #1 attack vector used by hackers today. And technology continues to fail to stop it.
In 2016, spear-phishing attacks rose 55%, Ransomware attacks grew 4X and Business Email Compromise (BEC) losses skyrocketed 1300%.
Join PhishMe as we look back on the top attacks and explore how to use a combination of Human and Technology to stop phishing attempts before they progress to a breach. In this presentation, we will cover:
- The big phishes of 2016 and what to look out for in 2017
- Why good employees click on bad emails – the emotional and situational triggers
- How engagement can decrease susceptibility
- How IR teams can stay on top of attacks in progress
During the third quarter of 2016, the PhishMe Intelligence team generated 689 active threat reports that highlighted indicators of compromise, tactics, and techniques that serve as the hallmarks of phishing attacks. Two key stories stood out this quarter. Locky continued to steal headlines as the dominant ransomware by continuing to innovate and avoid detection by experts. Meanwhile, other, quieter malware remained an ever-present threat to companies of all sizes. Join Brendan Griffin, Threat Intelligence Manager, PhishMe to learn about:
•Evolution of Locky Ransomware
•Challenges faced by malware researchers against the constantly evolving ransomware
•Quiet malware and their proliferation
•Ransomware versus Quiet Malware business models
Scott Crawford, Research Director of Information Security, 451 Research | Allan Carey, VP of Business Development, PhishMe
With all the attention paid to the technological sophistication of cyber attacks, as well as to the new technologies arising to strengthen defense, one fact often gets overlooked: Security is fundamentally about people.
The adversary is an intelligent actor – while the target is often human as well. The compromise of sensitive information or functionality may be in the crosshairs, but it’s people that are often targeted to gain a foothold inside the victim organization, through techniques such as phishing or social engineering. But here’s the secret: In this targeting lies one of the most unsuspected – but potentially rich – assets to defense an organization can have.
In this webcast, Scott Crawford, Research Director of Information Security for 451 Research, and Allan Carey, Vice President of Business Development from PhishMe take a closer look at:
•How the targeting of people through phishing, impersonation attacks and social engineering can be leveraged to improve security and resistance to attack
•New tactics and tools that make the most of human engagement to defend organizations against these exploits
•Ways to enhance incident response by incorporating human interactions with malicious activity into the evidence chain
John ‘Lex’ Robinson, Principal Client Engagement Manager at PhishMe
Phishing (including spear phishing), persists as the #1 attack vector used by hackers today. So far in 2016, spear-phishing attacks are up 55%, Ransomware attacks are up 4X and Business Email Compromise (BEC) losses are up 1300%.
PhishMe analyzed customer responses to over 56 million simulated phishing emails sent between 2015-2016 to identify various phishing susceptibility trends amongst employees. Join John “Lex” Robinson, Principal Client Engagement Manager to learn more about –
· Emotional motivators that cause employees to be more susceptible to phishing emails
· How baselining phishing risk to your organization improves your threat response.
· The value of repetition in changing user behaviors from susceptibility to reporting.
Kelley Mak, Former Forrester Analyst | Scott Greaux, PhishMe
Email remains an essential tool for business communication and collaboration as well as customer engagement. Because of its pervasiveness and business importance, it is a common – even preferred – attack vector for both cybercriminals and fraudsters that can result in devastating breaches and other financial losses. Yet, security teams can leverage the data from email to enhance their ability to detect, analyze, and respond to critical email security incidents, as well as leverage the threat intelligence for other security technologies.
In this webinar, former Forrester Analyst Kelley Mak will join Scott Greaux from PhishMe to:
•Provide an overview of today's email security challenges across on-premise and hosted cloud email deployments
•Discuss the need for in-depth email incident response capabilities, including internal and external threat analysis, prioritization, and rapid response
•Provide recommendations on how security teams can refine the email events in their enterprise into valuable threat intelligence
During the second quarter of 2016, ransomware has firmly established itself as a mature business model, showing no outward signs of diminishing. Encryption ransomware now accounts for 50% of all malware delivery configurations, meaning that it is no longer considered simply a means for making a quick profit, but a permanent fixture on the threat landscape.
This webcast will discuss how ransomware has now become a successful business and reveals findings on the use of steganography and ciphers in malware delivery. Join Brendan Griffin, Threat Intelligence Manager, PhishMe to learn about:
•Rise in Evasion Techniques
•How simple attacks can still inflict massive harm
Nick Hayes, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research | Rohyt Belani, Founder & CEO, PhishMe
For too long the human element has been wildly underutilized in protecting valuable assets and defending against prolific cyber-attacks. Security awareness initiatives are often sporadic, employing uninspired materials that yield little to no results – ultimately rendering security technologies useless due to easily avoidable human mistakes. A continued focus on security awareness alone is a plan doomed to fail. Instead, by shifting our focus to conditioning workforce behaviors through immersive experiences, security best practices become ingrained in daily workflow, helping to not only recognize and report on attack attempts, but weaponizing human intelligence to assist security operations, incident response and security event management in eliminating phishing threats.
Join guest speaker Nick Hayes, security analyst at Forrester Research, and Rohyt Belani, CEO and co-founder of PhishMe, as they demonstrate how building the right defense programs and teams can effectively change security culture, evolving from awareness to sophisticated strategies that achieve real results. In this webinar, you’ll learn:
•Why security awareness alone is failing the enterprise
•How to unlock the power of human driven intelligence
•Tips on speeding incident response
William Galway, Director of Product Management, PhishMe, Jesse Lands, Triage Security Engineering Manager, PhishMe

During the first quarter of 2016, the PhishMe Intelligence team generated 612 Active Threat Reports detailing waves of phishing emails that delivered malware to victims around the world each day. What stood out the most was the proliferation of encryption ransomware. It has grown to become the most common type of malware utilized through soft targeting and massively distributed attacks. This webcast will discuss the spread of ransomware and why it is so successful. Join Brendan Griffin, Senior Threat Intelligence Analyst, PhishMe to learn about:
•Trends in ransomware
•Tactics used to bypass your defenses
•Stopping the threat
In 2015, phishing related breaches dominated security news headlines, and the trend continues into 2016 with a rise in ransomware incidents. Even with record spending on security technology solutions, phishing remains the greatest threat to organizations.
As phishing success depends on human error, organizations need to better leverage their most important resources in the battle – their employees. The phrase “All it takes is one” no longer has a negative meaning when all employees are empowered as the last line of security defense after the malicious email passed through porous security systems in place. And, not only can employees be fortified to resist phishing attempts, they also hold the key to providing IT and Security teams with timely company-specific attack intelligence.
In this webinar, PhishMe’s Aaron Higbee and Scott Greaux will discuss:
· The success and failure of technology systems
· How conditioning – not awareness – empowers employees to identify and report phishing attacks
· How critical attack intelligence generated from employees can be used to detect attacks – in progress
Adrian Davis (ISC)², Jim Hansen, John ‘Lex’ Robinson, PhishMe
Phishing has been well established as the top entry method for hackers attempting to breach corporate networks and proliferate data. Yet, in spite of record spending on security technology, data breach reports continue to highlight the substantial lag between incident occurrence and detection.
Those investments are failing while organisations continue to neglect their final and best line of defense – their employees. Employees hold the key to fortifying the last line of defense and providing IT and Security teams with critical real-time attack intelligence. But it begs the question – do you know how to properly protect your employees and your organisation’s assets? What motivates employee behavior to fall for such attacks?
In this webinar, PhishMe’s Jim Hansen and John “Lex” Robinson will discuss:
•The current state of phishing
•The success and failure of technology systems and how human systems can protect the last mile
•How conditioning – not training – empowers employees to identify and report phishing attacks
•Factors that impact an employee's susceptibility to fall victim to an attack
•Keys to building a successful Human Phishing Defense

APT threat actors frequently have access to advanced resource and sponsors with deep pockets yet their preferred attack vector continues to be through phishing. This presentation explores the motivations, toolset, and attack surfaces of some of the world’s most prolific APT groups. Examples of recent attacks and case studies are used to demonstrate the effectiveness of distinct types of phishing attacks and their expected results.
David MacKinnon, Director of Research and William Galway, Product Manager and former Incident Responder
No one understands the strain of constant battle better than those in Incident Response (IR). Daily cyber assaults require an unattainable perfect response – every time. However, teams are constantly working within constraints and breaches continue to occur in record number. Technology has been introduced to help but has failed time and time again. Breach identification takes an exorbitantly long time. And above all, attackers continue to target that last line of defense – the vulnerable, easily fooled human assets. When that last line of defense is surpassed, the IR team is expected to catch the attacks in progress – wading through millions of false alerts while attackers continue to hone their approach and deliver evolved malicious payloads.
It’s enough to make you wonder why you got into this line of work!
Join PhishMe’s David MacKinnon and Will Galway to hear why it’s not all doom and gloom. Previous to PhishMe, both David and Will worked as incident responders in the Fortune 500 market, collecting years of security operations insight and best practices to share. In this session, you’ll gain tips and knowledge around new threats and solutions for Incident Responders such as:
•The new wave of malware to watch for and trends and threats collected from 2015
•The evolution of phishing emails, their targets and the payloads they deliver
•How to forge a new line of defense and triage potential attacks – quickly and easily
John ‘Lex’ Robinson, Principal Client Engagement Manager, PhishMe & John Washko, Product Manager, PhishMe
Phishing (including spear phishing), persists as the #1 attack vector used by hackers today – and they continue to launch more sophisticated tactics to gain access to corporate networks and assets. But, did you know these alarming statistics?
-87% of the employees who opened a phishing simulation email did so on the same day it was sent – which means organizations have little time to catch a targeted attack aimed at multiple employees
-Behavioral conditioning decreased susceptible employees’ likelihood to respond to malicious email by 97% after just 4 simulations
-The most effective phishing emails contain a business communication theme and subject line, such as “File from Scanner” or “Unauthorized Activity/Access”
This webinar, based on PhishMe’s recently released Enterprise Phishing Susceptibility Report, will help you understand how complexity and context impact the phishing susceptibility of employees in an organization, and how a continuous security training program has proven to significantly change employee security behavior. This data was collected from our study conducted with 400+ customers across 23 industries by sending over 8 million phishing-simulation emails to more than 3.5 million employees.
91% of breaches can be traced back to a phishing message that deceives a user into unleashing the attacker’s payload. Having infiltrated the network, it then takes an average 205 days for the threat group’s presence to be detected. For organisations to stand a chance of protecting their data assets, they need to get better at preventing threat actors from accessing their infrastructure and reduce the time it takes to identify their presence. But how?
The reason phishing has such a high success rate is that it targets people. Can you turn than your weakest link into a human force field that protects the network and provides actionable intelligence?
During this webinar, Jeffrey Rogers, VP of Customer Success at PhishMe, will reveal statistics about the phishing threat, detail how phishing has evolved, and explore how to engage users to develop better security habits and become human sensors.
PhishMe is the leading provider of human-focused phishing defense solutions for organizations concerned about their susceptibility to today’s top attack vector — spear phishing. PhishMe’s intelligence-driven platform turns employees into an active line of defense by enabling them to identify, report, and mitigate spear phishing, malware, and drive-by threats.
