Phishing poses a major threat to your organization, and this interactive session will test your knowledge and provide best practices for mitigating these increasingly sophisticated attacks.

Here’s how it works: Our moderator will ask multiple-choice questions based on recently released public-private research on phishing. Attendees will answer via our real-time polling app. Finally, our panel of experts will address the questions and discuss the correct answers more in-depth.

Some sample questions:

  • What’s the difference between spear-phishing and whaling?
  • Phishing is the most common entry point for a breach? Yes or no.
  • List three factors that make people more susceptible to phishing.
  • If you suspect a phishing attack, what’s the first thing you should do?

As this session will prove, learning can be fun, and the information shared will strengthen your organization’s phishing defense.
