Email is still a top attack vector criminals use. A majority of cyberattacks start with a phishing email, but email attacks are about much more than phishing and malware. Join Computing's Tom Allen in conversation with KnowBe4's Javaad Malik, as we talk about the top ways hackers can fool your users.
This web seminar will cover a variety of prominent email attacks like silent malware, remote password hash capture and rogue rules - and why social engineering sits at the top of all of them. We'll look at real-life examples of every type of attack, and talk about the best ways to defend against them. This is an event you can't afford to miss.
