In this webinar, you will learn:
• Why doxxing happens, and the most common doxxing methods used by attackers
• How to instruct a non-security audience on the security mindset
• What recycling slogans can teach us about maintaining our online presence
News reports on doxxing (the practice of researching private or identifying information about someone online, typically with the intent to publicize it) have increased exponentially over the last several years. While most of these reports focus on exposed individuals involved in high-profile or controversial current events, these same investigative methods are used by bad actors every day when researching targets for tailoring spearphish and other human-based attacks. Since many of the public records and social media resources used for this research fall outside the scope of the workplace, keeping corporate users safe requires arming them with education they can use at the office or at home.
Join Duo Security Strategist Zoe Lindsey for an accessible introduction to doxxing, what tools attackers reach for first, and how researching as an attacker might teaches valuable skills to make users a harder target.
