This dynamic session will provide a brief overview of the information security standards institutions must comply with in order to provide data security. The program will include some live demonstrations of how easy it is to obtain personal information, using readily available tools, even when security measures are taken. Topics covered will include creative phishing scams, targeted spam, keystroke logging, social networking site mining, and data loss prevention.
