There Will be Attacks – Improve your Email Defenses  

If you rely heavily on your users to defend your organization from email-borne attacks, you probably already have felt the impact of spear-phishing, ransomware, impersonation, and other cybercrimes.  If you showcase your senior employees on your website, accept resumes online, pay your vendors by wire transfer, or have employees with Linkedin accounts, you almost certainly are on the radar of cybercriminals.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How your email can be used as an entry point for multiple types of attack
  • The damaging impact attacks have on organizations
  • Why your employees could be the weakest link in your email security
  • How to enhance your email security and thus your overall cyber resilience
