Phishing, Watering Holes, And Other Social Engineering Scams
Date / Time: Wednesday, June 18, 2014, 1:00 PM New York/10:00 AM San Francisco
Overview:

Whether it’s simple spam or highly sophisticated malware attacks, most of today’s cyber exploits begin with a scam on a human user. Today’s “social engineering” attackers know a thousand ways to fool your users – from convincing-looking emails to phone calls to infections of popular websites. In this special edition of Dark Reading Radio, we speak to one of the industry’s top experts on social engineering to find out the latest methods that the bad guys use to fool your end users -- and how your business can stop them.

Dark Reading editor in chief Tim Wilson will be talking with Scott Gréaux, Vice President, Product Management and Services at PhishMe about this critical topic.

Scott Gréaux has over 15 years of diverse information technology experience spending most of the past decade developing solutions to address complex information security problems. Most recently Scott served as General Electric’s Deputy Chief Information Security Officer where he led key global initiatives such as Policy and Policy Frameworks, Security Awareness, Advanced Threat initiative coordination and Information Security metric reporting. During his tenure at GE he was uniquely positioned to see the threat of advanced phishing techniques and developed a multi-faceted program to address the phishing risk in a large enterprise. Scott brings his extensive experience and unique blend of business management and creative marketing practice to PhishMe where he works with customers to develop robust anti-phishing programs. Greaux also oversees PhishMe’s managed service offering, support operations and leads PhishMe’s Customer Advisory Board where he works with customers and industry thought leaders to align PhishMe features with the ever changing threat landscape.

The cybersecurity profession struggles to retain women (figures range from 10 to 20 percent). It's particularly worrisome for an industry with a rapidly growing number of vacant positions.

So why does the shortage of women continue to be worse in security than in other IT sectors? How can men in infosec be better allies for women; and how can women be better allies for one another? What is the industry doing to fix the problem -- what's working, and what isn't?

Is this really a problem at all? Are the low numbers simply an indication that women do not want to be in cybersecurity, and is it possible that more women will never want to be in cybersecurity? How many women would we need to see in the industry to declare success?

Join Dark Reading senior editor Sara Peters and guests Angela Knox of Cloudmark, Barrett Sellers of Arbor Networks, Regina Wallace-Jones of Facebook, Steve Christey Coley of MITRE, and Chris Roosenraad of M3AAWG on Wednesday, July 13 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss all this and more.
