About this talk

Targeted attacks start with email, and these security threats are always evolving. Just in the past few weeks alone, the Email lures leveraging the currently challenging times as a unique theme now represents the greatest collection of attack types that the Proofpoint Threat Research and Detection team has seen in years, if not ever. We’ve observed credential phishing, malicious attachments, malicious links, business email compromise (BEC), fake landing pages, downloaders, spam, and malware, among others, all leveraging coronavirus lures to exploit your employees, during these heightened emotional times. Join our speakers Sherrod DeGrippo, Sr. Director of Threat Research & Detection and Ryan Kalember, EVP of Cybersecurity Strategy as they take a deep dive into these tactics and share: - The current state and rapid evolution of COVID-themed phishing campaigns - Key defence mechanisms to reduce your organization’s risk - Awareness and training measures you can take to keep your users from falling victim Please note: This webinar won’t have a live Q&A as this is a replay; you can still send us your questions and we will get in touch via email after the session.
