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

Security Leadership and Digital Transformation

As digital disruption sweeps across every major industry, forward-thinking organizations are focusing on how multiple technologies can work together to drive meaningful and measurable impact. At the same time transformation projects are widening the threat landscape providing a green-field for hackers looking to exploit newly formed digital gaps.  In addition, compliance and regulations like the new California Data Privacy Act of 2018 dramatically change considerations when designing and securing innovative projects.  In this session we will discuss how security practitioners can get ahead of the curve and be a leader in the business discussing both risk and opportunity in transformation projects.  We will provide practical means to introduce the NIST framework into high level business discussions.  In addition, we will discuss good questions to ask business leaders to help them drive change and understand the relationship between data, applications and identities.  Take away slides and ideas that you can use to demonstrate security leadership while balancing risk and empowering your business.
