Why attackers love email and what you can do about it

Do you have a minute? 1 minute 40 seconds to be exact? That’s the median time-to-first-click in most phishing expeditions. While we celebrate all that humans can accomplish with the help of technology, we must also be cognizant of the dangers affiliated with humans and technology. How can you as a leader educate your people? How can you encourage them to take a minute to THINK before clicking?

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

Cyber Exposure – The Next Frontier

The attack surface for today’s IT landscape is a far cry from the past. Once focused on protecting traditional data centers, cybersecurity professionals are increasingly guarding a complex litany of modern assets like cloud instances, web-based applications, mobile devices, application containers and more. Failure to appropriately manage the unique characteristics of these technologies as a whole can jeopardize the entire risk management program. Join us for a discussion on how companies can reduce their risk and close their overall cyber exposure gap resulting from today’s challenging attack surfaces.
