    Hacking Humans – Social Engineering Threats, Responses and What’s Next

    ABOUT THE EVENT 

    In 2020, US financial institutions spent more than 10% of their total information technology budgets on cybersecurity, totalling hundreds of billions of dollars collectively. Yet paradoxically, cybercrime threats only seem to increase, and cyber threat actors and online fraudsters continue to rake in record-setting illicit profits each year.
    What’s behind this seeming disconnect? One reason is the human factor – human mistakes and vulnerabilities are the reason for an estimated 90% of cyber attacks. Despite vast spending, criminals and fraudsters are still finding it easier to hack people instead of hacking computers, and social engineering methods are their weapons of choice.
    In this session, a leading expert in online fraud prevention and security guides you on the present reality of social engineering attacks and gives you a preview of emerging threats. Join us for an entertaining and interactive session where we’ll challenge you with real-world fraud scenarios and see if you can catch social engineers! You’ll learn:
    • How old-school social engineering techniques to gather user credentials are being used on new targets
    • How fraudsters are able to manipulate customers into turning over one-time passwords and defeat two-factor authentication
    • New risks from “deep” social engineering and strategies for detecting it
    • What RATs have to do with online bank fraud
    • And more
