Lab Matters

As part of our general information sharing activity, we have launched a series of webcasts on YouTube. I will be hosting a lot of them, so I thought I would let you know we’ve begun.

In this first webcast Costin and Magnus join me in discussing targeted attacks today – what they are, how to prevent them and how to mitigate if the attacks do succeed after all. Who should listen? Well, clearly IT staff for starters.

However, targeted attacks affect all of us – because the main attack vector is through social engineering This means that every single person employed by a company under attack – is a potential entry point.

So – take 5 minutes and listen to Costin, Magnus and myself and let us know what you think – was it useful? Do you have further questions? Do you have other topics you would like to hear about?
