Today’s environment requires everyone to take more responsibility for protecting personal and employer digital assets from the various, never-ending digital attacks. Everyone benefits when individuals understand hackers’ primary methods, how to mitigate threats, and how to avoid being the weakest link.

This webinar will be a fresh look at hacking the weakest link – people duped by social engineering. Social engineering is commonly seen in phishing emails, fraudulent phone calls, and other confidence schemes. It is the easiest and most common method used by malicious attackers to gain unauthorized access to systems, resources, and data. Learn common real-world tricks and techniques that work and how to lower your risk. Get the latest tactics, tools, and techniques straight from an expert “white hat” hacker.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.
