Mayday! Mayday! We’re All Still Vulnerable, Maybe Even More So Now in Quara…

May 1, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

While we’re all on lockdown and self-quarantining, it’s clear that crooks, scammers, and cyber criminals of all ilks are working even harder than ever before to compromise victims. In an April 16, 2020 online panel hosted by the Aspen Institute, FBI Deputy Assistant Director Tonya Ugoretz said the number of reports to the FBI via the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3has quadrupled during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cyber attackers are leveraging Business Email Compromise (BEC) scams, ransomware, Trojan Horse-like “free VPN” software, and fraudulent websites to target new victims, millions of whom are working from home now for the first time. This highlights the need for business leaders and IT audit to continue to enhance and monitor newly created processes , yet still allow exceptions to enable a mobile remote work force. Please join our moderator Scott Augenbaum, former FBI SSA with the Memphis FBI Cyber Crimes unit and best-selling author/speaker and our distinguished panel as they discuss threats and solutions in this new environment. Collectively, they represent nearly 100 years of experience in IT audit, cyber security, law enforcement, and client consulting in industries as varied as healthcare, finance, manufacturing, retail, legal, government, and businesses of all sizes. They are ready to talk about today’s teleworking challenges for businesses, their employees, and the IT, cyber security, and audit teams who are supporting them. You won’t want to miss it – please share with your colleagues.
