Podcast: Emerging Security Threats: Know Your Enemy in 2014
In this webcast, Johanne B. Ullrich, dean of research for the SANS Technology Institute, breaks down the emerging security threat landscape, focusing on spear phishing and automated fraud.
Ullrich first outlines the anatomy of one type of attack, explaining how the attacker locates a target, obtains crucial information, and reconfigures the victim's email system to reroute payment-related email to the attacker. Once accomplished, the evildoer then can scoop up millions of dollars -- all without deploying a bit of malware. Listen in to learn how you can protect against these sophisticated attacks.
