How to Social Engineer Your Users Into More Secure Behavior

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. Email phishing campaigns have proven to be the path of least resistance for getting unsuspecting individuals to download and install their malicious software. 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 an effective security awareness program that focuses on preventing socially engineered attacks and how to validate the results of your training with simulate phishing campaigns.
