About this talk

A steady rise in social engineering attacks highlights the risks associated with the human element, with employees inadvertently providing entry points into enterprise networks through acts as simple as providing personal information gained from a LinkedIn account to an urgent text message that leads to a click on malware. These risks can be heightened even further when employees use their personal devices, which can lack the proper security software required to thwart potential attacks. In this webinar, Verizon CISO, Nasrin Rezai, ABI Research Director, Michela Menting and Verizon Senior Director of Security Sales, Jennifer Varner will explore: - How social engineering attacks have become more difficult to detect - The brand- and financial-damaging effects of a successful attack - Why Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies can carry greater cyber risk - How Verizon is addressing these risks through advanced threat detection software supported by AI-based honeypots Hear from the experts: Host: Michela Menting, Senior Research Director at ABI Research Jennifer Varner, Senior Director, Security, Verizon Nasrin Rezai, Senior Vice President & Chief Information Security Officer, Verizon
