Most of the major security breaches in the last few years have begun with a simple phishing email or social engineering attack. In general, people are easier to fool than computers and security systems. What are the methods that cyber criminals and other attackers are using today to trick users into clicking on an attachment or giving up their logon credentials? What do these attacks look like, and how can end users be trained to avoid them?

In this unique session, social engineering experts will offer real-life demonstrations of these attacks and show you, step by step, how end users are fooled into downloading malware or giving away sensitive information. There will also be a discussion of how to defend against these attacks through both training and technology.
