In the literal interpretation, pig butchering means fattening up an animal before the slaughter. In the cybercrime definition, it means toying with victims for weeks or even months—luring people into a false sense of security so they provide more and more money.

This tactic made investment fraud the most financially-devastating cybercrime last year. But attacks of all types continued to grow in 2022, resulting in a 49% increase in losses over the previous year. So what can be done? Join this webcast session with Brian Krebs to learn:

•  What makes pig butchering so unique—and so effective

•  Why other types of cybercrime like Business Email Compromise continues to grow

•  3 vulnerabilities cybercriminals are exploiting to successfully attack organizations

•  2 key takeaways to keep your personal and professional lives safe

With predictions from Krebs on where criminals are moving next, this live-only event is one you won't want to miss.

Attendees are eligible to receive CPE credit.
