About this talk

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
