Leading the national effort to recognize, manage, and reduce risk to our cyber infrastructure is no easy role, but if anyone understands it, that person is Chris Krebs. As Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) from 2018 to 2020, Krebs led the national effort to keep the United States safe from cyberattacks in all forms.

Join us for this webinar, where he’ll be discussing how the cybersecurity effort plays out in the email vector, with insights into how cybercriminals use email to attack individuals, enterprises, and government organizations. With estimated losses of $43 billion since 2016, business email compromise (BEC) is our largest cybersecurity concern—and it should be yours too. 

Krebs will speak with Abnormal CISO Mike Britton, answering questions including: 

  • How have you seen business email compromise evolve over the last several years? 

  • What are some of the most sophisticated attacks you’ve seen, and how were they stopped?

  • Why is BEC still impacting enterprises and government organizations today, despite efforts to stop it? 

  • How do you see email evolving as a threat vector in the future?

And much more. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from government expert Chris Krebs as part of the Modern Email Attacks webinar series. 

Attendees are eligible to receive 1 CPE credit.
