  • Coronavirus Phishing Threats. A Cofense Webinar. Recorded: Apr 2 2020 48 mins
    Aaron Higbee, Cofense Chief Technology Officer & Co-Founder, and Tonia Dudley, Cofense Security Solutions Advisor
    Cofense has created the Coronavirus Phishing Infocenter to provide security and awareness teams useful tools to combat the escalating scourge of email threats preying on people's pandemic fears. The site includes the latest examples of real COVID-19 related phishing emails reported by Cofense users – all of which have evaded perimeter controls like Secure Email Gateways (SEGs).

    Join Cofense Chief Technology Officer & Co-Founder, Aaron Higbee, and Cofense Security Solutions Advisor, Tonia Dudley, as they lead a 45-minute discussion on evolving Coronavirus attacks and the best ways to stop phishing threats that are getting past even the most sophisticated SEGs.
  • Security Awareness and Security Operations Working Together Recorded: Mar 2 2020 32 mins
    Tonia Dudley, Security Solutions Advisor, Cofense
    It has become cliché to say that the user is the weakest link in cybersecurity. However, it is also true that the user is often the last line of defense — phishing and other potential security attacks often depend on a person clicking on a link or malware-laden file to launch an attack. While a company might have a top notch cybersecurity operations team, without having an equally trained user base the company is essentially defending itself with one hand tied behind its virtual back.

    This SC Magazine 20/20 editorial webcast looks at how CISOs can augment their professional cybersecurity team and security operations center with a highly aware user base to identify and defeat potential breaches.
  • Cofense Q4 2019 Malware Trends Recorded: Feb 11 2020 30 mins
    Alan Rainer Senior Intelligence Specialist, Cofense Intelligence
    While the fourth quarter of 2019 saw a decrease in total malware volume, Emotet (also known as Geodo) took the spotlight with email reply chains, macro-laden attachments, and convincing phishing templates. Of course, Emotet is just one of many threats currently facing organizations. Defenders need to understand both the current phishing landscape and how it may change in the future to best safeguard themselves from compromises and breaches.

    Tonia Dudley, Security Solution Advisor, KJ Jagtap, Product Marketing, at Cofense
    As the phishing threat landscape continues to evolve at a pace that technology is unable to keep up with, organizations are turning to phishing awareness and simulation programs to plug the gap. Is your phishing awareness program keeping up with this changing landscape?

    Join Cofense as we explore the attributes of a modern phishing awareness program and see what our data, based on millions of phishing simulations, shows about awareness programs and simulation exercises.

    You will learn:
    - The statistical advantage of using an email reporting tool
    - The important role the end user plays in active defense
    - How often you need to send simulations for maximum resiliency
    - The advantages of basing simulations on active threats, not random dangers
    - Why ‘phish testing’ is the enemy of true phishing defense
  • How to Prevent Breaches with Phishing Threat Intelligence Recorded: Jul 18 2019 47 mins
    Joshua Bartolomie, Director, Research and Development and KJ Jagtap, Product Marketing Manager, Cofense
    Mottos like "If you see something, say something" speak to the power of human observation in preventing security disasters. Similarly, valuable human-generated intelligence can be effective in preventing data breaches emanating from phishing attacks. In today’s changing cyber threat landscape, humans need to be conditioned to recognize phishing attacks and security teams need to be armed with actionable threat intelligence to rapidly manage an attack once it hits.

    This is where Phishing Threat Intelligence comes into play. By extracting key IOCs from newer phishing threats and making them available to security teams, organizations can detect attacks in progress and respond quickly to reduce the effect of a breach. Plus, by incorporating the same intelligence and tactics in your awareness program, you can train your users to more quickly detect and report an active threat.

    Join this webinar to learn about:

    - The constantly changing threat landscape
    - Turning active, real threats into learning moments for your users
    - Speeding up response with timely, actionable intelligence

  • SC Magazine Webcast: The Key to Malware Credential Theft Explosion Recorded: Mar 19 2019 31 mins
    Joshua Bartolomie Director, Research and Development Cofense,, Stephen Lawton, SC Magazine Editor and Chief
    Unfortunately, the users expect and assume that the first, second, and third lines of defense – the company’s security technology – has already stopped threats and attacks before they even get to the users’ systems.

    We in the industry know this isn’t always accurate and it is exactly what we plan to address in this 20/20 webcast.

    Listen is as we discuss how to teach them to recognize phishing and other potential threats that was clever enough to get past our technological best efforts.

  • Surfing the Global Waves of Phishing Recorded: Oct 10 2018 56 mins
    Nik Kalogirou, VP of Sales (APAC), Cofense; Ryan Jones, Sales Engineer, Cofense
    What’s keeping you up at night? Ransomware? Phishing? Spyware? Malware? Data Breaches? A malicious email typically opens the door to those threats.

    Organisations spend great energy (and budget) preventing users from falling prey, but threat actors continue to find ways to get past automated controls, staying one step ahead of artificial intelligence tools. Solving the phishing problem is more than just awareness: it’s about empowering humans to become instinctual nodes on the cyber defence network and feeding their real-time intelligence to security teams for immediate action.

    Join Cofense and (ISC)² on Oct 10, 2018 (Wed) at 13:00 (Singapore time) to hear about trends that we’ve been seeing around the globe and how they can impact the Asia-Pacific region.

  • Into a Dark Realm: The Evolution of Ransomware Recorded: Sep 20 2018 38 mins
    Darrel Rendell, Principal Intelligence Analyst, Aaron Riley, Intelligence Analyst, at Cofense
    While ransomware might not be dominating the headlines, it is still a persistent threat that continues to evolve. Weaponized emails still make it past the gateway and ransomware infections happen. Today, variants of ransomware offer “customer support” offered by the cybercriminal for communication and negotiation with the victim. Ransom amounts can vary depending on the perceived wealth of the victim. Ransomware operators also offer flexible payment methods using forms of payment other than Bitcoin and even structured payment/decryption plans. As ransomware evolves, so must your response to these threats.

    This session will help you understand:

    - The impact of what happens if your users are not trained on email scrutiny
    - The multiple effects it can have on your enterprise
    - Techniques to mitigate incidents and bolster your network’s protection against future attacks
  • SCMag 20/20 Webinar: The Ransomware No-Win Scenario Recorded: Aug 23 2018 31 mins
    Brendan Griffin, Threat Intelligence Manager
    Ransomware is a vicious type of malware. Not only can it potentially destroy your data and perhaps even your hardware, it can wreak havoc on your business operations. Ultimately the question a company has to face, of course, is do you pay the ransom for the chance to recover your system or not. If you don’t pay, you potentially could lose everything. If you do pay, you potentially could still lose everything, as well as possibly break various laws. This 20/20 editorial webcast with ensuing special report takes a deeper dive into your options and why you might well face a no-win scenario. It’s the Kobayashi Maru test – do you follow the rules or make your own?
