With it being flu season, no one wants to hear that a new strain of the flu has been discovered. Just as network defenders will not be excited that Locky ransomware has evolved yet again. This time however, threat actors decided to add a darker theme to code.
Part 6 in a series on being “Left of Breach” in the Phishing Kill Chain.
In part 5 we looked at the importance of reporting and associated best practices for implementation and measuring success at both the simulation and program trending level. Now let’s shift the focus from the development of our user base as reporters to a more traditional security skill set of detection, analysis and mitigation of threats.
Part 1 in a weekly blog series, “How Attackers Target Trust,” running during October, National Cyber Security Awareness Month and European Cyber Security Month.
While modern technology and pervasive media can make all things appear new, they really aren’t. As we continue the battle against advanced persistent threats, malware and fraud, it’s important to remember that confidence men and women have been at this game for a long time.
Part 5 in a series on being “Left of Breach” in the Phishing Kill Chain.
In part 4 we looked at Simulation Delivery, and stress the importance of utilizing methods that model malicious actors and advanced persistent threats. We will now take a closer look at developing reporters in your company environment.
Anti-phishing, like all security, is a team sport. (Apologies for that metaphor, but football season is here.)
So join PhishMe® and other security professionals at PhishMe Submerge 2017, our second annual User Conference and Phishing Defense Summit, Nov. 29 – Dec. 1, Gaylord Hotel, Washington National Harbor.
Part 4 in a series on being “Left of Breach” in the Phishing Kill Chain.
In part 3 we looked at Simulation Design, where we discussed utilization of simulation results analysis and active threat intelligence in anti-phishing programs. We will now take a closer look at simulation delivery practices.
