Phishing is one of InfoSec's longstanding threats. But for cybercriminals, email is just one entry point of many. How can you better prepare you and other end users in your organization for cybersecurity threats beyond email-based social engineering?

During this session, we will share results from the Proofpoint’s Beyond the Phish® Report, which examines end-user understanding of a broad range of cybersecurity topics and best practices. The report features analysis of data related to nearly 130 million cybersecurity questions and offers insights into employee knowledge levels across 14 categories, 16 industries, and more than 20 commonly used department classifications.

We will cover:

•  The importance of assessing and training end users about cybersecurity threats beyond email-based social engineering

•  The strengths and weaknesses among end users across 14 cybersecurity topics, highlighting how end-user knowledge levels vary across industries which provides a benchmark to compare readiness within your organization

•  A more holistic view of susceptibility by looking beyond knowledge assessments and training activities to discover how this data can differ from simulated phishing attacks

•  How you can use this information to reduce the risk of successful cyberattacks within your organization

In addition, we will be giving an overview of the free resources that we have available for security professionals to use with their end-users during Security Awareness Month in October.

Join our experts as we dive into the report and share best practices and pitfalls in the pursuit of a stronger security culture.
