About this Event

Fighting Social Engineering and Building a Human Firewall

According to Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigation Report, 93% of data breaches are linked to phishing and other social engineering incidents. Effective IT security requires ongoing attention and due diligence in order to protect against threats such as ransomware, phishing, smishing, vishing, whaling, and USBishing.

At the same time, the majority of users are not properly trained on how to recognize these increasingly sophisticated threats so they commonly fall for attacks. A “human firewall” can provide a solid line of defense by making people more aware and better at spotting malicious content.

In this session, we’ll cover the tactics that help support a strong security posture. Some are often overlooked, and if not done, or not done regularly, leave businesses at risk. You’ll hear:

  • The biggest issues in social engineering that we are seeing today
  • The different solutions available such as anti-phishing, SPAM filters, and email gateway tools
  • Best practices to implement and make part of your ongoing process – what to be monitoring, updating, testing, etc.
  • The importance of a human firewall and how to build one
  • Ideas for policies and procedures to have in place to help protect sensitive data and other assets

This session is for IT professionals with the content tailored to small to mid-sized companies. The event starts at 12 p.m., includes lunch, and will conclude at 1 p.m.

We hope you will join us for this SSR Tech Bytes event -- Grab a bite. Talk about tech!

Space is limited – reserve your seat today!

Note: We are also holding a session for business owners/leaders taking place on Thursday, September 26, from 7:00 – 8:00 a.m.
