Description: The 2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report suggests that 30% of people will open a phishing email. With hundreds of thousands of people working in financial institutions around the country, we have a high potential level of risk. Cybercriminals have also weaponized tools into phishing emails that can compromise our systems and take over control. Phishing campaigns have been automated and are distributed as a “crime-as-a-service” to other cybercriminals looking for repeatable processes to conduct mass-scale phishing campaigns.

Considering the high probability of people to fall victim and the damaging destruction phishing can cause, it positions phishing as a digital weapon of mass destruction.

This discussion will highlight the advancements in cybercrime and social engineering that are targeting our people resources. Best practices will be discussed for processes necessary to improve the weakest links in our institutions. With a reliable process, we can measure the level of risk and implement effective risk mitigating controls.

This webinar is done in partnership with GSB.
