Despite tens of billions of dollars spent on security technology globally each year, attacks continue to get through. Canadian organizations continue to lose money, data, and the trust of customers and partners.  That’s because today’s cyberattacks target people, not technology.  Chris Montgomery of Proofpoint will share real-world stories of people-centric threats, including phishing, credential phishing, email fraud, brute-force attacks, and cloud account takeover.
We’ll look ahead at the trends and events likely to shape the threat landscape in 2019. A shakeout in the cryptocurrency market will change the way threat actors move - and steal - money, while email fraud moves from spoofing identities to using stolen identities, making it more effective and harder to detect. At the same time, attackers will double down on abuse of legitimate infrastructure and state-sponsored actors will increasingly act with impunity as laws and defenses attempt to keep up with new capabilities and targets. Social media threats will overlap with increased compliance concerns while threat actors will continue to refine filtering and targeting capabilities, keeping their attacks under the radar and improving returns on investment. We’ll discuss key actions you can take to prepare your organization with a people-centric approach.
