Trends in Email Fraud & How to Prevent Enterprise-facing Attacks

Cybercrime is on the rise, as evidenced with all the recent, high-visibility attacks including those on the Bank of Bangladesh and the DNC which both made news headlines earlier this year. The question many are asking is why and maybe more importantly, what can be done to stop it.

In this webinar, we will review the current trends in cybercrime — both from the perspective of what they are and what drives them. Using ‘real life’ examples such as the attacks on the DNC, we will show how it was possible for researchers to anticipate the rise in targeted email attacks as early as in 2005, and how the recent wave of nation-state attacks enables us to identify the next wave of enterprise-facing attacks.

We will also discuss how the users’ understanding of risk drives attacks, what types of awareness campaigns are most helpful, and when automated detection tools need to take the place of efforts to increase end-user awareness.

For the most part, we’re no longer falling for badly worded emails from “Grandma” asking us to wire her $10,000 immediately for back surgery. So what are we falling for? Phishing attacks aren’t going away. They’re just evolving into more targeted, more complex threats.

Social engineering scams, one of the oldest tricks in the financial fraud book, still threaten financial institutions and other businesses through malware, ransomware and email attacks, per San Mateo, Calif.-based Agari.
