Why is spear phishing detrimental to your business? At its most basic level, spear-phishing attacks are a highly targeted form of cyber scamming involving well-crafted emails being sent to deeply researched victims. These cyber hackers utilize highly organized reconnaissance methods such as executive summaries from company websites, social media scraping methods, and social engineering to hijack processes. Bespoke emails are hard to spot without close inspection and difficult to stop with technical controls alone. There have been many, many examples of high profile spear-phishing attacks that had led to significant financial loss.

- Hear how cyber leaders are educating and protecting executive and finance teams from being clickbait
