You have very likely received this kind of email before.
Some estranged Royal from a country you have never heard of before, emails you telling you they need your help to reclaim a lost fortune and if you assist they will give you a cut of the money.
Very few of us fall for this kind of scam anymore, but when it comes to phishing emails and social engineering attacks, these obvious scams are not the ones you need to be worried about.
Spear phishing has become far more sophisticated; they are very targeted, sometimes down to an audience of one. More important, they are designed to play on the recipient’s emotions and thoughts to maximise the chance of engaging the victim and eliciting a response.
Join this great webinar where Fedelis will introduce experts from Barracuda, the world leaders in Phishing simulation and awareness as they take you deep into the minds of cybercriminals and show you how you can arm yourself against the social engineering attacks your organisation is going to face
Date: 7th October 2020, Wednesday
Time: 3.00 PM to 4.00 PM
Venue: Online via Microsoft Teams
It is no coincidence that corporate cybersecurity teams are starting to recruit criminologists and psychologists to their ranks. They are doing so because they realise that exploiting human psychology plays a significant role in the success of cyberattacks.
At its most basic level, phishing works because it exploits one of the following:
Hope, Fear, Desire, Ambition or Greed.
The answer lies in increasing awareness across your organisation of the tactics that cybercriminals use so that they can be more guarded against the sophisticated attacks that can really play on their mind.
