Session Descriptions

Phishing Emails/Social Engineering

This presentation will discuss the evolution of phishing from being a means of stealing user identities to becoming a mainstay of organized crime. Today, (spear) phishing is a key component in a “hackers” repertoire. It has been used to hijack online brokerage accounts to aid pump ‘n dump stock scams, and as a means of creating covert channels from compromised user machines to the Internet. Bank employees sometimes assist fraudsters by providing confidential company information, risking their jobs and possibly facing arrest and criminal prosecution.

Learn the techniques used by attackers to execute such attacks, why employees may be enticed to participate, and explore current case examples to help determine what red flags to watch out for and measures your bank can take to prevent these attacks.
