Our guest today is Dr. Erik Huffman, Lead Technical Instructor at SecureSet. Dr. Huffman has been researching the psychology of cyber security for his dissertation and is taking a deep look at the human element when combined with technology. 94% of all cyber attacks last year were phishing attacks. Dr. Huffman discusses what makes us susceptible to these attacks. We need to understand that we are the target more so than anything else. It is easier to break through the human interface in cyber security than any other attack vector. This is a very real problem for us all. Learn what you need to do to keep yourself from being attacked through social engineering.
