The Cyber Helpline is a U.K. charity that supports more than 2,000 victims of cybercrime every month by linking them with cybersecurity experts for free, professional help. The charity is delighted to be launching a pilot in the U.S. and to bring with them a wealth of expertise and knowledge to address a major gap and cybersecurity challenge in the States.

Cybersecurity professionals are best placed to fill the gap in support for individuals experiencing cybercrime, but the impact, trends, and the importance of giving safe advice means that it differs from "traditional" cybersecurity. Individuals facing cybercrime face unique challenges and require tailored support and expertise, which isn't always available.

This presentation provides insight into a few different crimes but will focus on sextortion. Reports have indicated an uptick in these types of crimes, and InfoSec professionals need to know how to help their fellow colleagues and co-workers who might fall prey to these scams. 

Attendees are eligible to receive 1 CPE credit.
