Wednesday, June 5, 2019 1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Phishing is the single most significant threat facing every organization, government, and individual in the world. Ironically, this is also the least known attack vector in modern society. According to the 2018 DBIR phishing attacks were the source of greater than 96% of breaches. This attack vector accounts for a overwhelming majority of enterprise risk. This talk presents methodologies, risk trend analysis and demographical impact on phishing susceptibility. All data presented was discovered through Joshua's extensive research into social engineering as a form of defense for attack prevention.

Findings include key statistics, common employee demographical risk trends, lessons-learned, and more. In addition, the research has led to significant improvements in defensive social engineering methodologies which will be detailed in this fascinating account of a pentester, turned entrepreneur's journey to solve one of the most significant threat's facing individuals, enterprises and governements alike.
