Recognizing a Critical Cybersecurity Vulnerability: The Human Element

Cybersecurity is largely a behavioral concern, as cybercriminals use social engineering to trick people into transferring money, entering their credentials, or providing access to sensitive data. A 2019 report from Kaspersky found that 90% of data breaches are caused by human error. Threat actors know that humans are vulnerable, and they take advantage of this through carefully-crafted social engineering emails that are designed to exploit expected behavior.

Attend this webinar on Wednesday, October 27th at 2:00pm ET to learn how cybercriminals take advantage of the human element, and what you can do to prevent advanced, socially-engineered email attacks from tricking your employees. Steve Crimando, Behavioral Threat Management Professional, and Crane Hassold, Director of Threat Intelligence at Abnormal Security, will speak about:

  • Why bad actors are turning to social engineering to steal money and data

  • Which social engineering techniques are used by cybercriminals to trick your end users

  • How to use additional security measures to prevent best prevent advanced attacks
