Security Appreciation, Not Security Awareness: How Corporations and Financial Institutions are Following Their Hearts to Avoid Being Scammed
Every few seconds, someone’s identity is stolen because data is breached, computers are hacked, credit cards are compromised—and often, as a result, reputations are ruined. When this happens, fingers point at IT, other employees or problem clients. The fact is, the system we function under, combined with the conveniences of technology, is set up to fail due to flawed tech or simple scams. And unless employee and consumer behavior is fundamentally altered, it’s just a matter of time before those very employees and consumers all become victims. You may have heard of “security awareness”—and despite its buzzword status, it has not worked. Some studies show anywhere from 15 to 80 percent of consumers or employees still fall for phishing scams, even though they know the risks. Don’t get hooked.
In this presentation, Robert Siciliano will explain:
- Why we fall for the same old tricks over and over again—and how to stop the cycle once and for all
- The difference between security awareness and security appreciation
- How to make your employees’ and clients’ data resistant to social engineering
