"Don't Be Phooled!": What You Need to Know About Phishing
1:30pm - 2:30pmTuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Phishing represents a significant threat to individuals, businesses, healthcare organizations and government entities. The weakest link in any security program is the people. The size or sophistication of the organization does not matter—and healthcare is no exception. Phishing is a pervasive problem which can no longer be ignored without adverse consequences. Phishing techniques have become quite sophisticated from the human and technical perspectives. The impact and consequences of a successful phishing attempt can also be significant. The phishing message may seem very convincing and authentic—especially when coming from a trusted vendor, a colleague, or a friend. This session will discuss the latest phishing techniques, anatomy of a phishing attack, sample phishing messages and how to mitigate the threat. This is based upon the research findings of the DHS Analytic Exchange Program's "Don't Be Phooled" white paper.
