In honor of Cybersecurity Awareness Month #BeCyberSmart, Security Awareness Advocate Erich Kron, along with IIBA® are working together to help raise awareness within the community about cybersecurity. Join us as we discuss a growing cybersecurity trend that can affect us both professionally and personally – Social Engineering.

Social Engineering methods and the cybercriminals behind these attacks are furiously innovating, doing their best to keep IT professionals and businesses off-guard.

It will cover ways to identify and counteract these attacks and discuss recent real-world attacks and the social engineering tricks that made them effective.
