Synopsis

Phishing emails occupy a unique place in our society. Their concept is simple enough for anyone - from layperson to security expert - to understand. However, if you thought this simplicity would translate to easier & more universal phishing protection, nothing could be further from the truth.

In this talk, we will take a dive into the science of spear-phishing attacks to understand why a high percentage of individuals still fall for these attacks.

Turn in to learn:

  1. Quick history lesson and science behind phishing attacks
  2. Highlight how phishing attacks exploit our cognitive biases and force us to 'click before thinking'
  3. How a change in email security can help stem the phishing tide.

Our events are for adults aged 16 years and over.
