During this session, SocialProof Security CEO Rachel Tobac dives into the anatomy of trust exploitation in real world social engineering attacks, walks through step-by-step examples of attacks that happened during COVID-19, and identifies the steps you can take to protect their data, money, security and privacy from real world attackers, even during a global crisis.
