Digital Alliances Chapter Overview


Session Leaders: Chris Martin – Director – Abnormal

Session Theme Title: Why an Abnormal

Session Overview and Synopsis:

Traditional email security can’t stop new and emerging threats, and cybercriminals are constantly changing their methods to stay one step ahead. The increasing use of BEC and ransomware, constitute two of the biggest threats we see today.  Whilse it may seem these attacks are on opposite sides of the threat spectrum, there are a number of factors that link them together.  Managing the challenges that these create, means employees are continuously being targeted, and the organisation must be protected from these attacks – many of which you may not have seen before. Fortunately, there are insights you can use to protect your company and your employees.

Session Outcome:

  1. Understanding The modern threat landscape and its impact on organsations
  2. How bad actors use email accounts to launch attacks into the business environment
