For most companies, it is a lot easier to hack their people than it is to hack their network systems. Small businesses are especially vulnerable. Cybercriminals often attack companies to establish "back doors" into the networks of their largest customers and vendors. And regardless of their size, more than 80% of successful network breaches are triggered by the actions of end users. Whether they're using easy-to-crack passwords or clicking on email attachments that introduce malware, the weakest link in a company's cyber defense is almost always its staff. This fun and informative presentation explores ransomware (including the recent WannaCry outbreak), email phishing and spear phishing, social engineering, and other common exploits - all from the perspective of training your employees how to recognize the bad stuff for what it is, and how to avoid making your company the next victim.

Speakers: Gordon Merle, SL Powers and Michael Gavaghen, SL Powers
