Topic & Speaker
Join Tom DeSot, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Digital Defense, as he regales the audience with his own social engineering experiences and outlines what organizations of all sizes can do to protect themselves from hackers looking to ex-filtrate data from their companies.
All around the globe, companies large and small are spending thousands or millions of dollars to buy the latest technologies to protect their systems and networks from the onslaught of attacks that they face on a daily basis. Sadly, many of these same companies will be easily compromised over the phone, or even in person, by attackers using advanced social engineering techniques
