“Hacking Phishing” – Super Cyber Friday

Please join us on Friday, September 23rd, 2022 for Super Cyber Friday.

Our topic of discussion will be “Hacking Phishing: An hour of critical thinking about how malicious attackers weaken trusted forms of communications.”

REGISTER for 9-23-22 Super Cyber Friday

Joining me, producer of CISO Series for this discussion will be:

In preparation for our discussion, think about the following:

  • It seems that battling phishing is a two-pronged defense strategy: Being aware of the techniques and putting controls in place when you’re not aware.
  • All our communications platforms seem like trusted sources, but phishing has shown us that there are very few communications platforms that are truly safe. Which ones are the safest?
  • Phishing has new names when it appears on other platforms, but it’s really all the same just happening on different platforms.
  • What controls can we put in place to deal with phishing across all the different vectors?
  • How do you deal with nested attacks, where they’re inline of an already existing conversation?

It all starts at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific. At the end of the hour [2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific] we’ll switch gears to our meetup where everyone will get a chance to chat face to face.
