Trends in Email Fraud and How to Prevent Enterprise-Facing Email Attacks
Register to view the on-demand webinar filled with stats, examples of recent attacks by technique and how to protect your organization from targeted socially-engineered email attacks.
About this webinar:
Email is the most popular communication tool, as well as the entry point for up to 95% of security breaches. As cyber criminals evolve their techniques, targeted, enterprise-facing email attacks are rapidly increasing, fueled by an almost inexhaustible supply of potential victims and the tremendous profits awaiting successful fraudsters.
This talk will provide an overview of both the technical and psychological principles these criminals take advantage of, shedding light on why traditional defenses continue to fail. We will then describe a set of new defense mechanisms that enable enterprises to stop these attacks and review the results of early experiments with these approaches, which offer a new perspective on ways to prevent email fraud.
