    Cyber Security for HR Professionals: Not Another Phishing Presentation!

    Presentation Description

    As HR representatives, the majority of you have participated in training about phishing attacks and the risk of clicking on links that we’re not familiar with, but what is the actual risk? Hackers? Viruses?

    In this presentation, we will go behind the scenes to 1) look at real attacks, 2) understand the methods of attackers and 3) go to the criminal marketplaces where information is bought and sold. The audience will gain a better understanding of the threat landscape and how to protect their organizations.
