About this talk

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
