Date: June 27, 3:00 PM CEST
Length: 60 minutes
All humans make mistakes. One of the most intriguing findings from IBM’s “2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index” is that 95 percent of all security incidents involve human error. Many of these are successful security attacks from external attackers who prey on human weakness in order to lure insiders within organizations to unwittingly provide them with access to sensitive information. This session will unveil a case study and provide detailed insights on how we can avoid these types of errors in the future.
