When You Are the Whale—Growing Risks from Social Engineering Attacks

This webinar will explore the growing risk from social engineering attacks aimed at exploiting your firm’s finances, data protection, and professional reputation. Social engineering is the low tech, high impact method of fooling the right person on the wrong day to steal information, money, and access to your most sensitive client and firm information. We’ll glide through a brief history of social engineering from phreaking in the ’70s to the current spear-phishing, whaling, and pretexting attacks that threaten your firm and uncover best practices to protect yourself.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the most common social engineering attack methods
  • Acquire common sense protocols to protect your firm and your clients
  • Develop firm cybersecurity education protocols and an incident response plan
  • Understand what social engineering is and how it’s evolved
