Session 1
Open Forum

Session Leaders: Ironscales

Session Theme Title:Phish Stink!

Session Overview and Synopsis:

One of the biggest targets for cybercrime is your employee’s inbox.  And while technology is evolving to protect against advanced phishing threats, it still isn’t perfect – leaving the potential for malicious emails to land in an unsuspecting user’s inbox. When the stakes are this high, and your customer’s, employees’, and businesses’ data and reputation are on the line, email security needs to be a two-pronged approach.

Session Theme Title: Taking the stress out of email security

Session Overview and Synopsis:

Phishing attacks are on the rise. Unfortunately, traditional SEGs and AI-only anti-phishing software can’t keep up with today’s volume and variety of advanced threats. As sophisticated phishing techniques evolve to break through the technology-based safeguards, your employees become the last line of defense in protecting your business, your data, and your reputation.

Session Outcomes and Takeaways:

  • Why AI alone isn’t enough to prevent phishing threats
  • How to empower your users to better detect and report suspicious emails
  • Tips for improving email security without adding more to your workload
