Last September, our company fell victim to a Trojan Horse that was unleashed into the company's network. Our IT department routinely gets requests by our user community to inspect questionable emails. This time was no exception. Unfortunately, Fred (not his real name) did not believe IT and decided to open the email's attachment anyway.
How confident are you at identifying fake, scam or malware infected emails? How many times have you had difficulty figuring out if a message is real or some kind of scam? Would you be a Fred?
Hear the story of what happened, and why you are always the last line of defense. This presentation will show you how to SAFELY analyze a message and become a pro so that you can identify these bad emails. It's not that hard. It doesn't matter if you're a novice or power user, you don't want to miss this special presentation.
Learn the tips and tricks, and test your new skills by being quizzed with some real examples.
