How Cyber Attackers Fool Your Employees – And How To Stop Them

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.

    Erich Kron, CISSP Security Awareness Advocate, KnowBe4, Inc.
    In spite of all the spectacular news stories about advanced persistent threats and targeted hacks from nation-states, the most common security challenge facing enterprises today continues to be social engineering. Successful hackers understand that the user is the weakest link in the security chain.

Getting users to identify phishing attacks and training them not to click on links in email messages is not a trivial task.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn the strategies and techniques that social engineers are finding success with. You’ll also learn how to implement these techniques, to create real-world simulated phishing emails to test your employees and see how phish-prone they really are.

    Key topics covered in this webinar:
    - Latest phishing attacks strategies and techniques
    - Some of the top-clicked phishing emails from Q3-2017
    - How to use these tactics when creating simulated phishing emails to test your user

  • Spearphishing, Whaling, and Other Targeted Social Engineering Attacks On Your Us Recorded: Nov 15 2016 71 mins
    ERICH KRON, SECURITY AWARENESS ADVOCATE, KNOWBE4
    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.
  • The Case for Security Awareness Training Recorded: Nov 8 2016 30 mins
    Stu Sjouwerman, Founder and CEO of KnowBe4
    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.
