On Thursday, July 13, 2017, Dark Reading is hosting a webinar where I’ll be speaking on how attackers perform research for targeting enterprises and ways that blue teams can prepare to prevent and detect recon. KnowBe4 is sponsoring the webinar and Erich Kron, Security Awareness Advocate, will be talking about their phishing and awareness offerings.
How Cyber Attackers Research Your Organization, And What To Do About It
For most online criminals, the first step in a major attack is to do research on the target organization. This “reconnaissance” may involve sending fake emails to employees, stalking executives on social media, making fraudulent phone calls, or other social engineering techniques that might yield credentials or help lay the groundwork for a more sophisticated attack. How do you know when your organization is the target of this type of reconnaissance – and what can you do to disrupt it?
In this eye-opening webinar, you’ll learn how attackers can take advantage of your website, employees’ social media, and other vehicles to learn about your organization – and get the ammunition they need to convince your end users to trust them.
Attend this webinar and get:
- Real examples of how attackers gather intel and use it to launch convincing phishing exploits
- Best practices for disrupting attackers’ online reconnaissance methods
- Ways to enhance your staff’s cybersecurity awareness, so they are more aware of reconnaissance, less susceptible to social engineering
This is an interesting topic and one I’m excited to talk about. In a few weeks, I’ll be joining Chris Hadnagy for a panel at Black Hat on the same topic. If you’re there, come see us.
