Phishing and Spear Phishing, and What to Do about Them
There has been a dramatic increase in phishing and other hacker attacks this year. Many in our communities have fallen prey to identity theft attacks, have had their e-mail accounts compromised, or have been tricked into downloading malware onto their machines, which has spurred a great deal of discussion among security professionals trying to figure out how to handle the problem. Siena College has taken a multipronged strategy, educational as well as technical. This session will present Siena's approach, detail how successful we have been, and survey approaches used by other institutions.
