Numerous leaks from social media sites, including the recent ones from Facebook, LinkedIn and Clubhouse, resulted in the exposure of users’ personal information. In particular, the recent Facebook leak exposed mobile numbers of over half a billion users and this data is now publicly available.

Use of mobile devices has become mainstream, for both private and business use, but these devices lack the type of security available on corporate PCs. You are also more likely to react to a text message than an email, making mobile numbers and devices an ideal target.

As a result, attackers are adapting and are now bringing their Phishing techniques to mobile with Smishing - Phishing via SMS, with more than 61% of organisations already facing these attacks in 2020.

In this webinar attendees will discover:
- The tactics, techniques, and tricks used by real-life Smishers
- A live demo of a real Smishing SMS sent to your device
- How Claranet can help you prevent these attacks from being successful

The session is ideal for infosec managers and leaders, Data Protection Officers, Heads of Compliance and Risk, Heads of Information Security, SOC Analysts and security enthusiasts.

Register to join, we look forward to talking to you.
