Most major enterprise data breaches begin with an attempt to fool a single user on your network. Whether they are targeting top executives, financial decision makers, or IT people who maintain passwords and credentials, today’s cyberattackers often are going after specific individuals in your organization. And as the holiday shopping season begins, these attacks on individuals may become easier – and more frequent.
In this eye-opening webinar, top experts on phishing and social engineering will discuss the motives and methods that attackers use to execute these targeted “spearphishing” attacks. You’ll get insight on how the attackers choose their social engineering targets, the methods they use to find out about those individuals, and the exploits they execute to fool specific users into giving up sensitive information. You’ll also get recommendations on how to prevent this early reconnaissance, as well as the attacks themselves, and how to train your users to recognize an attack before it creates a compromise.
Ask a security expert what the most vulnerable cog in the security wheel is and they will tell you it is the user. A company with the most detailed policies and procedures and best-in-class security hardware and software is still vulnerable if a user decides to take an action potentially compromises data, such as copying a confidential file to a thumb drive to work on it at home, opening a spearphishing email and clicking on the attachment, or deciding to check out their favorite YouTube channel from a workstation attached to the corporate network.
This 20/20 webcast looks at necessity for on-going security awareness training, how it can be incorporated into the workday, and the kinds of user activities that can be changed through such training.
Your enterprise may have an IT security awareness program, but is it really working? Do your end users understand the threats posed by online attackers? Are you confident your users can spot a potential security threat – and that they will report it if they do?

Protecting your enterprise data is often referred to as a technology issue, but most cyber attacks begin by fooling a user into doing something, such as unknowingly downloading malware or giving up security credentials. This “social engineering” is the most common way that an online attacker will gain access to your business – and the hardest to defend against, because it exploits everyday human weaknesses, rather than technical vulnerabilities.
How do attackers fool your employees via email, Web, phone, and onsite? What are some of the latest methods they use to trick users and employees into breaking security policy? And most importantly, what can your organization do to keep its employees from being taken in? In this informative Dark Reading webcast, top experts on social engineering will answer these questions and many more. You’ll learn about current social engineering methods and the “human” threats posed by online and physical attackers. You’ll also get insight on how your organization can train and test its users and employees to recognize and turn away these social engineering exploits – before they compromise your business.

Most enterprises do some form of IT security awareness training for their end users – but not all of them do it well. Organizations of all types and sizes frequently fail to build programs that truly convince users to change their behavior – and keep enterprise data safe.
In this eye-opening webcast, top experts on security training offer insights on what works in security awareness programs – and what doesn’t. You’ll get insights on how to build and deliver a curriculum that makes end users smarter about security – and prevents them from engaging in online practices that could put your corporate data at risk.
