Maybe you already know—or maybe you don’t, in which case you’re about to—that Barracuda keeps a very close eye on the state of the cyber threat landscape, and publishes regular reports on the latest trends. In particular, we track phishing threats very carefully, since crooks are constantly developing and deploying new, more effective ways to lure users into making a bad click decision.
Well, now we’ve released Volume 5 of our “Spear-Phishing: Top Threats and Trends” report, and if you’re responsible for keeping your organization secure against cyber threats and online criminals, then you’ll want to attend our upcoming webinar on what’s inside. Columbia University professor Asaf Cidon and Barracuda Senior Product Marketing Manager Olesia Klevchuk will provide a detailed walk-through of the newest phishing trends, what they mean in practical terms for IT pros like you, and how countermeasures are evolving to help you fight back.
One especially disturbing finding concerns the growth of phishing scams that seek to exploit their victims’ anxiety about the Covid-19 pandemic and widespread misinformation concerning the new vaccines developed to combat it. Fortunately, a combination of advanced phishing-detection technology and highly targeted and engaging security-awareness training can greatly reduce the risk these threats pose to your organization.
The key is knowing what to expect and how to combat it. And that’s the most important reason to attend this webinar. It’s coming up in just a few days, on January 13, so go ahead and register now to attend. I hope to see you there.
Can't make it on January 13? Register anyway and we'll send you a link to watch the webinar on-demand.
