Cyber criminals rely less on automated attacks and exploits of vulnerable software and have shifted to social engineering end users. They are going direct and manipulating humans into interacting with their deceptions. Traditional classroom based training and awareness programs are not working for these new types of attacks. We will introduce the concept of "Employee 2.0"; the enablement of a culture with persistent cognizance of good security practices.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding social engineering tactics.
  • Learn about phishing, social media, fraud and ransomware.
  • Learn beyond training and awareness and changing employee behavior.
