IT controls to combat social engineering threats

4 years ago · 15 min watch

Cybercriminals will use any means available to get your information or your money—both, if possible. One such way is through social engineering, a term used to define a category of cybercrime that has quickly become one of the greatest security threats facing organizations today. Rather than relying on software-related vulnerabilities, social engineering attacks rely on human error and an attacker’s ability to manipulate a victim into providing confidential information.

In this recording, Rob Rudloff, addresses social engineering, covering the following topics:

  • Common types of social engineering attacks

  • Prevention and approaches to building in layers of security controls to reduce the risk from social engineering attacks

  • Detection and employee awareness

  • How to contain an incident before it turns into a breach
