Attackers follow a number of paths as they search for entry points into your organization. Depending on the motivation behind the assault, criminals will use different strategies to meet their end goal. In the case of pure financial gain, some of the savvier bad guys will turn to the increasingly popular CEO Fraud Attack, or Business Email Compromise, to really cash in. No matter how extensive your Security Awareness Training Program is, your company is vulnerable to these attacks. Employees are quick to act when a financial request comes from the CEO or CFO. What protocols do you have in place to make sure your team knows when an email is really coming from the C-level?

Our experts will help you understand:

  • The attacker’s workflow

  • How they select targets and entry points

  • The social engineering tricks that go into these attacks

  • How to create your own "Red Team" activities as part of your penetration testing program

  • The legal aspects of these attacks and when to engage with counsel or law enforcement

Join this educational webcast and make sure your organization doesn’t fall for these costly schemes.
