There is one constant in the security world: the attackers will continue to evolve their methods as the defenders find ways to thwart social engineering attacks.
So, it should come as no surprise that attackers are doing anything they can to slip-into your networks through whatever means are most expedient. Often, the most expedient path is to bypass technology-based defenses partially or altogether and target your end-users, seeking to exploit human nature.
Your users stand -- knowingly or not -- at the front lines in the battle to secure your network as a vast horde of cybercriminals are on the move, readying their next wave of attacks. And the battlefront is email.
So, what are the trends in email security? Is there hope? And what can you do now to protect your organization? What “people, process, and technology” strategies can be effective in helping to mitigate the threats?
Watch this video where two of the industry’s leading experts – Featured Gartner Research Analyst Neil Wynne and KnowBe4’s Chief Evangelist & Strategy Officer, Perry Carpenter -- wrestle with these questions, analyze attacker methods, and offer practical advice.
