Today, it’s not “if” your information is going to be compromised or stolen, but “when”. As technological advances become engrained in our society, hackers and cybercriminals adapt to newest trends in order to take advantage of the most glaring vulnerabilities.

Spear phishing attacks are drastically increasing as cybercriminals are catching onto the fact that tricking someone is much easier than hacking. Mark Lanterman will be discussing the growing importance of the “human element” of cybersecurity, the pervasive impact of the Internet of Things, the threat of the Dark Web, in addition to providing the audience with some realistic advice on how to counteract the risks.
