Social Engineering Masterclass: Stopping Psychological Cyber Crime

Cyber criminals continually evolve to stay one step ahead of those looking to protect against cyber attacks. Social engineering has evolved quickly to be one of, if not the most effective tools in a cyber criminal’s toolbox. Is your business truly prepared to protect against this ever-evolving threat?

Your Business’s Number One Threat

Disclosure of data is by far the most common type of security incident reported to the ICO and phishing is still overwhelmingly the most common type of attack method used; both of which are intrinsically linked to Social Engineering. It’s therefore no surprise that year on year the significance of social engineering continues to grow, driving more sophisticated and more successful phishing, vishing (phone), smishing (SMS) and physical attacks. European countries are reporting this type of criminal activity, involving social engineering, on a massive scale, according to Europol.

The Impact on Your Business

Attackers increasingly use psychology and predictable human behaviour to manipulate employees, either to carry out actions or divulge information that ultimately lead to a successful attack; the result being the execution of malicious software, theft of personal data, hijacking of accounts, or processing of illegitimate payments, often leading to significant operational disruption, loss of revenue, damage to brand reputation, and the potential for large fines.

The Solution: How to Prevent Social Engineering Attacks

Delve into the mind of an attacker at this interactive half-day training event, including real world examples, leading industry insight, panel discussions, and actionable output that you can embed back at the office. Join us on 9th April 2019 to learn how you can implement effective strategies that protect your business.

Key Themes Include:

Knowing Your Enemy Why social engineering has become increasingly popular with attackers, why it is so successful, and how to identify risk

External Attacks in Operation – Learn how social engineers plan and carry out attacks, including examples of common approaches, existing coping strategies and why on their own, these are no longer enough

Social Engineering in Practice - Real world demonstrations showing how attackers gain information with ease, that can be used to leverage a successful attack.

Combatting The Threat - How to introduce a strategy that effectively identifies, plans, implements and manages against the threat from social engineers; including assessment strategies, resilience programs, policies and procedures, driving cultural change, education and training, and new technology.

Stuart will be joined on the day by guest speakers, from across industry, and with a wealth of experience in protecting against social engineering.
