The development of the COVID-19 epidemic into a global pandemic has presented a unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fraud and predation which cyber threat actors, both criminal and otherwise, have been quick to exploit to the fullest. On December 14, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern/10:00 a.m. Pacific, join (ISC)2 and Francis Gaffney, Director of Threat Intelligence and Response at Mimecast, as he discusses the post-2021 environment with a particular focus on the current state of cyber threats in relation to geopolitical events and how they can have an impact on what arrives in one’s inbox. He will explore events like Black Friday, national elections, and global sporting events. He will include examples of how pattern-of-life analysis is undertaken to social engineer victims to interact with cyber threat actors and then offer target hardening methodologies to enable attendees to be more resilient to these threats.
