Email Security - Oops, You Clicked; Now What?

An employee is powering through their email to get caught up on the backlog, a convincing message from an old colleague entices them to click on the hyperlink provided. They now find themselves on a strange website that suggests danger. Panic sets in and they wonder if they just infected their machine or network. Unfortunately, we know this scenario all too well. More often than we would like, employees find themselves in situations where they are tempted to open a risky email.

After building a solid understanding behind the motive and capabilities of the social engineering tricks often presented to your employees and customers, we will then study how to build a stronger information security program to defend our customer data and funds.
