Security Awareness Presentation

The Information Security Office is hosting a Security Awareness presentation, along with food and drinks, for anyone on campus interested in learning detailed steps for how to protect themselves, their family, and their data online.

Presentation Details:
The first part of the presentation will be delivered by Don Peterson who will give a real world look into how an attacker could earn your trust to compromise your information on Social Media and then discuss steps to help mitigate this. Some aspects of his latest embedded research against a current extremist group will be discussed. To protect yourself you have to know how the attacker thinks.

The second part will be given by Brian Allen who will talk about current security threats to the campus, plus look at real life phishing emails people have fallen for. There will be examples to test if you can spot the real email vs the phish. We will talk about how those spam and phishing scams work, and what some of those criminals are trying to steal.

We will also have time for any security questions you might have.

Date: Thursday November 17, 2016
Time: 3:00-4:30pm
Location: Simon Hall Room 23

The conference room will hold up to 50 people so please RSVP To Brian Allen at brianallen@wustl.edu.
