There seem to be new types of cybercrime attacks that emerge every week, requiring organizations and consumers to constantly second-guess each digital interaction they have.

Although these scams vary in tactic, one thing remains the same: they employ the art of social engineering. Social engineering has become a key component of a successful hack, and a threat actor's most accessible gateway to their victims.

Join this webinar as Brian Krebs discusses the latest attacks that rely on social engineering, diving into recent onslaughts around SIM swapping, cookie swiping, crypto, EDRs, and more—and why organizations continue to struggle in detecting and stopping them.

He will answer questions such as:

•  Why do organizations continue to fall victim to these types of attacks?
•  How do these social engineering attacks typically start?
•  Are certain types of organizations more at risk than others?
•  What is most concerning about these attacks, and where are we headed next?

With key insights from one of the leading names in cybercrime research, this is an event you won't want to miss. Attendees are eligible to receive 1 CPE credit.
