The social engineering 'problem' and why security awareness training alone will not save you!
Date: 15:00 BST, Tue 19 July
The dual-issues of users' perceived weaknesses and lack of information/cyber security awareness are regarded by many as ever-increasing problems within organisations, backed up in a number of recent surveys.
This webinar will explore the issue of social engineering and discuss attack motivations, methods and approaches, and why social engineering attacks work. Given that many organisations use security awareness/education programmes to mitigate the perceived problems, a case will be made as to why awareness/education courses on their own will not solve the problem.
