Cyber Fraud Update – March 2018 First Friday

March 2, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Business Email Compromise (BEC) has become a significant threat to U.S. businesses and individuals. Since October 2013, the FBI has identified victims from 131 countries and a global monetary exposure of over $5 billion dollars as a result of BEC fraud.
Ransomware is a form of malware that targets both human and technical weaknesses in organizations and individual networks in an effort to deny the ability of critical data and systems. Ransomware is frequently delivered through spear phishing e-mails to end users.
During the course of the presentation SA Nigro plans to address the following:

  • Describe BEC and Ransomware
  • Discuss the current threat landscape
  • Describe tactics, techniques, and procedures used by the criminals
  • Discuss why situational awareness and information sharing are important
  • Offer strategies to help protect your business from BEC and Ransomware attacks
