It seems like fraudsters are always one step ahead. The battle against sophisticated social engineering attacks continues. Are you keeping up? Join us to learn the latest schemes and defenses.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify social engineering exploits that may be successful at your institution
  • Understand how attackers are using multiple forms of social engineering to gather information throughout your institution
  • Detect suspicious calls that may have been overlooked
  • Determine areas that may be susceptible to onsite social engineering exploits
  • Take steps to protect against complex threats

The previous year saw social engineering attacks increase in both volume and sophistication. The perpetrators of social engineering (SE) attacks are smart, motivated, and persistent. Phishing emails are by far the predominant SE security breach, but the last year also saw deep fakes (a type of artificial intelligence) being used to create convincing images, audio, and video hoaxes. By using artificial, enhanced voice simulation, fraudsters stole $35 million from a bank in the United Arab Emirates. COVID19 has forced many institutions to close lobbies for extended periods of time and this has contributed to an uptick in successful onsite SE exploits. A combination of multiple types of SE attacks spread over time has contributed to an increase in SE-related losses. Join this insightful webinar to learn how to confront these threats.
