We are excited to announce February’s edition of the OUCH! newsletter – “Personalized Scams”. This is a really important one as cyber criminals have changed tactics. Led by Guest Editor and SANS Instructor Lenny Zeltser, we show you how bad guys are now personalizing even the most common scams. Cyber criminals can easily find personal information on millions of people, from our passwords and account names to birth dates and addresses. They are then using that information to personalize scams they send to millions around the world, making their attacks far more effective. Learn how these new attacks work, but even more important how to spot and stop them. Download and share OUCH! with family, friends and co-workers.
Folks, the Call for Presenters for THE security awareness event of the year is now open. This year’s Summit will be Wednesday, August 6 and Thursday, August 7 in beautiful San Diego, California. We are looking for speakers who are actively involved in helping organizations build, maintain, or measure security awareness programs and can share real-world stories and lessons learned on propelling an awareness program to the next level. Our goal is for attendees to walk away with actionable lessons they can apply right away to their own program. Prospective presenters for the Security Awareness Summit should provide their submissions no later than Monday, March 11th.
