The New Face of Cyber Threats - Ransomware and Social Engineering, The Next Level Major media outlets and publications such as CNBC, Fortune, Bloomberg and Forbes have headlined “people are often the weakest link in the security chain” for the past year. Cyber aggressors know this all too well. Motivated threat actors have taken ransomware and social engineering attacks to the next level. Do know what an advanced social engineering attack looks like? Are you ready?


Andrew Plato, accomplished author, speaker, leader, and analyst in information security, will be sharing with us his experiences and knowledge as the cyber threat landscape continues to evolve and provide even more challenges. Andrew envisions solutions based on identifying fringe patterns to improve early detection of social engineering, defending systems with procedural delays at key points in processes, and recovering from ransomware attacks with disposable information technology.


Join Laszlo Gonc, SIM’s Cybersecurity Special Interest Group (SIG) Programming Lead and established security professional as he interviews Andrew Plato, President and CEO of Anitian, for a lively discussion on ransomware, social engineering and the future of cyber security.
