Cyber Security II
New threats, new approaches
Warning – email originated outside of organisation. When you see a message too often, you no longer receive the message. What can you do to maintain staff awareness about the cyber-threats that are just waiting for a chance to break in? Now that your organisation is used to remote working, how can you prevent them from being complacent; encouraging them to reject the instinctive belief that threats lie outside the door of their homes.
Join us for Deskflix Cyber-security II to learn the tactics of cyber-criminals, and how to make life more difficult for them. Join your peers in discussing secure collaboration, employee awareness techniques, and how to overcome the core challenges that Covid-19 has so far presented.
For information including the registration and agenda will be announced soon. Please contact Rubie Romanay for enquires.

Email is still the #1 attack vector the bad guys use. A whopping 91% of cyberattacks start with a phishing email, but email hacking is much more than phishing and launching malware! Join Javvad Malik, Security Awareness Advocate at KnowBe4, as he explores 10 ways hackers use social engineering to trick your users into revealing sensitive data or enabling malicious code to run. We will also share a special treat - a (pre-recorded) hacking demo by Kevin Mitnick.
You will learn:
- How silent malware launches, remote password hash capture, and how rogue rules work
- Why rogue documents, establishing fake relationships and getting you to compromise your ethics are so effective
- Details behind clickjacking and web beacons
If all you were worried about were phishing attempts, think again!
- Actionable steps on how to defend against them all

Today, 94% of cyber-threats still originate in the inbox. Impersonation attacks’ are on the rise, as AI is increasingly being used to automatically generate spear-phishing emails, or ‘digital fakes’, that expertly mimic the writing style of trusted contacts and colleagues. Humans can no longer distinguish real from fake on their own – businesses are increasingly turning to AI to distinguish friend from foe and fight back with autonomous response.
Meanwhile, the emergence of AI-enhanced malware is making cyber-attacks exponentially more dangerous and harder to identify. In the near future, we will begin to see supercharged, AI-powered cyber-attacks leveraged at scale. In an era when thousands of documents can be encrypted in minutes, ‘immune system’ technology harnesses defensive AI to take action in seconds – stopping cyber-threats before damage is done. Find out how in this session and hear real-world examples of emerging threats that were stopped with defensive Cyber AI.

Human Error will take his audience on an unconventional journey. Forget everything you thought you knew about cyber security. Most people operate under the assumption that they should think before they click. Not so, says Human Error. It’s critical, especially in our new work from home environment, that we click before we think. Human Error will remind everyone why all links are safe, how it’s critical to use the same password for everything, and the importance of putting sensitive data at risk. The rules may have changed during these unprecedented times, but Human Error’s tips for smart cyber security remain constant and as valuable as they’ve ever been.
