Trends in Social Engineering, and Automated Mitigation

Presented by

Markus Jakobsson, CTO, ZapFraud

About this talk

The successful deployment of improved authentication and encryption technologies is increasingly forcing scammers to exploit the weakest link of security: the end user. Consequently, social engineering, such as Business Email Compromise (BEC), is on a rapid rise. In this talk, I will explain how scammers are exploiting the blind spots in traditional security technologies and take advantage of the psychology of their intended victims. I will also describe how to automatically identify social engineering attacks, with a focus on BEC.
