retarus - Catch me if you can – The tricks of email scammers
Social engineering relies on the human weakness: A company's IT security strategy can be no matter how good - it alone is not enough if employees fall for e-mails in which, for example, fraudsters pretend to be the boss (keyword: CEO Fraud), phishing e-mails open or alleged support employees reveal their password or other sensitive data. The consequences of successful social engineering attacks are serious and range from data theft and identity abuse to financial losses in the billions.
But how exactly do criminals proceed with this highly effective method of attack? What tricks are used? And what can companies do to protect themselves and their employees from such scams? Retarus e-mail security expert Martin Mathlouthi will answer these and other questions on the subject of "Catch me if you can – The tricks of email scammers".
