Web Conference Overview:

Social media is everywhere and your employees are addicted to it: at home, at work, on corporate and personal devices. And, that spells big opportunity for cyber criminals. The social web has made it progressively easier for cyber criminals to use our own information against us. Attacks using socially engineered tactics are rising exponentially. Why? Quite simply…they work. Advanced targeted attacks, such as spear phishing, are one of the most used, most dangerous, and most successful attacks today. In fact, over 95% of enterprises are already compromised and most don’t even know it. This web conference will describe the issues each speaker has had and/or seen, and provide their recommendations for dealing with them.
