Malcovery®Security, the leader in delivering actionable intelligence that can be applied to neutralize email-based threats such as phishing, spam and malware, today announced that it has partnered with Concise Courses, a leader in delivering information security training, to deliver a free 60 minute continuing education class, entitled ‘How To Catch a Phish: User Awareness and Training’, designed specifically for CIO's, CTO's, CISO's and senior executives who work within the Financial Services, Healthcare, E-commerce and Government Agencies and are responsible for protecting their customers from phishing and malicious spam attacks.
After taking this 60 minute continuing education course, those that take the course will have:
- An overview of current facts and figures that prove multiple layers of cyber-crime defense and prevention (web ﬁlters, web gateway blacklists, take down vendors etc) and end user education and training aren't working.
- Actual case studies demonstrating how easy it is to set up a phishing attack and how basic, but yet effective phishers strategies are to capture their victims information.
- A simple strategy you can immediately use to avert the remediation costs and long term loss of brand loyalty/ reputation caused by phishing attacks.
“Security awareness and training is key part of winning the battle against email-based threats like phishing and malicious spam" said Greg Coticchia, President and CEO of Malcovery Security. “We are excited to bring this free course to security executives so they can aware of the latest issues and what actions they can take”
