Social Media and Data Breaches
July 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
The purpose of this session is to demonstrate how, terrorists, spies and criminals, “bad guys” take the seemingly innocuous information you post on the Internet and use it to victimize you and your organization. Specifically, audience members will see how “ bad guys” utilize this information to create infected emails/documents the recipient will open. Once the email/document is opened, the ensuing network is compromised. In these instances, it does not matter how robust your IT budget is, because the offender has totally bypassed it. Ms. Arruda will demonstrate what a motivated offender can do with your information in as little as 45 minutes. From finding a target on the Internet, building a profile, crafting three different emails that will likely be opened and compromise the business’ network.
