Cybercrime and Scammers – Part of Our Modern Lives

Scammers and cybercriminals have moved to the digital world, allowing them to work their scams in ways never previously believed, while potentially having hundreds of victims spread across the globe. These bad actors are extremely talented and target organizations and individuals with equal interest.

Why do people fall for scams when some seem so obvious? Are they really as organized as we are told? What are some of the most common scams out there? We went live with veteran information security professional, Erich Kron, who answered these questions and more in this recorded webinar.
