About this talk

Never let a crisis go to waste. That’s the attitude of most attackers being played out in cyberspace in the past few months. In this webinar we are going to review the types of attacks that specifically leverage the coronavirus pandemic. From phishing to BEC, from ransomware to state-sponsored disinformation campaigns and more. Whether you are in healthcare or in tax and accounting, no one seems to be safe. Awareness is the first step in preparing your organization for the possible impact and making plans to bolster your defenses. Speaker: Ira Winkler is one of the world’s most influential security professionals and a repeat speaker at the RSA Conference. He has designed and implemented security awareness programs at organizations around the world. Ira began his career at the National Security Agency as an Intelligence and Computer Systems Analyst.
