Fighting Cybercrime in 2022: All for one and one for all

Presented by

Mike Bailey Senior PMM, Security Awareness Proofpoint

About this talk

Cybercriminals have an arsenal of tactics at their disposal - phishing, malware, social engineering, email fraud, identity theft (EAC), and ransomware. Successful attacks only need one tactic to work, but companies have to protect against all of them. The number one attack vector is still email and the number one target is still people. In 2021, attacks became more sophisticated and volume increased by ~20%. Email-based attacks were more successful with 83% of companies falling victim to successful phishing attacks (up from 57% the year before). In this session, Mike Bailey will: • Explore recent trends in the threat landscape • Discuss best practices of a people-centric security strategy including technology, processes, and people • Show how a layered, integrated approach can yield success
