COVID 19 Phishing Scams: Managing the Human Element
As Covid 19 has ushered in increased phishing scams across the Middle East nations, it has also called for a change in behavior in almost all areas, including cybersecurity, managers, and employees. With this, IT security's 'human factor' is becoming more relevant for a company to defend against cybercrime. The most prominent among phishing scams is the 'CEO scam', in which employees receive emails from their superiors requesting them to make payments or transmit sensitive information, among others.
The session will discuss:
- How to influence and secure the elusive human factor
- How to build a multi-line of defense by collaborating with the stakeholders
- Harnessing technologies to enable the teams to fight against phishing scams
