ID: 1564506

(PresseBox) - Increase Your Skills will be making their inaugural appearance at Scotland?s largest annual cybersecurity awareness event, taking place between 22ndand 28th

The talk takes place on Friday 26thArmed and?. It invites participants into the cybercriminal mind and to understand the fundamentals of how they orchestrate phishing attacks. This talk will cover the social engineering techniques used by attackers, how one successfully identifies a phishing email, and how using live simulation tests can drastically reduce a successful phishing attack?s likeliness.

?No one anticipates that

The significant rise in cyberattacks in response to the COVID-19 pandemic highlights the need for companies to reassess their internal security practises and ensure they have initiated robust awareness training for employees. With an increase of 667% in phishing scams in one month alone during the COVID-19 pandemic, now more than ever, organisations need to be assessing how prepared their employees are in preventing successful attacks.

?Without giving too much away, I think viewers will be interested in seeing what we have developed to help organisations fully prepare their employees for a genuine phishing attack and look forward to sharing this with the people of Scotland?,

The annual event seeks to bring together industry leaders, specialists, and the wider general public to discuss the current developments facing the cybersecurity industry and showcasing new, innovative awareness-raising products. The week-long event combines workshops, talks and web seminars that will analyse how we all can help combat one of the greatest threats facing organisations today, whilst also seeking to inspire the next generation of cyber specialists.

?We are delighted to be taking part in Cyber Scotland Week and thank the organisers for letting us be part of the event,? said Tomas Edwards,
