Wednesday, March 21 at 2 p.m. ET: How Online Attackers Research Your Organization, with Chris Hadnagy, Chief Human Hacker at Social-Engineer LLC. Whether they are large or small, most targeted cyberattacks begin with some simple research on your organization. This process of collecting "open source intelligence" (OSINT) may include discovering employee information on e-mail or social networks, investigating your enterprise via sophisticated search techniques or the Dark Web, or basic social engineering methods that fool trusted users into giving up credentials or other information. In this webinar, top experts discuss the methods that online attackers use to perform reconnaissance on your organization – and they offer advice on how you can make it more difficult for attackers to collect the information they need to launch an exploit.
