Real threats for business: Mischief, extortion and million-dollar frauds

Graham Cluley

Computer security threats for business - a keynote speech from Graham Cluley

As you may know, aside from blogging here about computer security threats I also regularly give presentations at conferences and company events.

I thought some of you might be interested in seeing a talk I gave last month in Berlin at Sailpoint’s identity governance conference, known as Navigate ’16 : “Real threats for business – mischief, extortion and million-dollar frauds.”

In the talk you’ll hear me describe my favourite virus of all time, the antics of the Syrian Electronic Army, the growing tide of hackers engaging in extortion, the huge damage that can be done through business email compromise, and some audacious real-life crime that might walk through your company’s front door.

The talk lasts a little over 40 minutes, but hopefully doesn’t feel too long.
