Recorded (2-hour event): Tuesday, July 26, 2016


Over the past year we have seen numerous attacks against our computer infrastructures. While we think they are all geared against technology they are not. In just the last year we have seen improved phishing attacks using Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media. In addition, we have seen fake public announcements for companies -- like the hostile takeover of Avon -- via a company that didn't exist. Which raises the question... has it become too easy to attack a company using social media?
