Join us with Proofpoint for the ninth annual State of the Phish webcast for an in-depth look at the latest threat landscape, including rising threats such as MFA phishing, BEC, ransomware, and TOAD attacks.

Based on an analysis of anonymized data from 135 million simulated phishing attacks as well as more than 18M phishing emails reported by Proofpoint's customers' end-users, we will provide insights into common user vulnerabilities such as knowledge gaps and security habits. We'll also share how you can effectively mitigate these vulnerabilities with best practice security awareness education and controls.

In this session, Proofpoint's experts will discuss:

•  The 2022 threat landscape – complex attack techniques targeting people  
•  User vulnerabilities from multiple angles 
•  How organizations are delivering security education and ways to improve program success 
•  Security controls that help defend against human-activated threats 

Attendees are eligible to receive 2 CPE credits.
