#HoodOffChat – Escaping The Hack: Hack Proofing Your Social Media Accounts

Join us this Friday for the third installment in the #HoodOffChat series. Our topic of discussion is Escaping The Hack: Hack Proofing Your Social Media Accounts (A show-and-tell). We will be joined by our guest Ette Assam, a top-class rotisserie and mixologist.

He has built his food business from nothing to what it is today. From the small city of Calabar to be recognized across Nigeria as a top rotisserie by leveraging Instagram as his marketplace. Unfortunately, losing this growing business platform flashed before Ette’s eyes when he suffered a social media account Hijack.

Join us this Friday for an Instagram Live discussion as he recounts his ordeal, what he learned he could have done better, and much more. He’ll be joined by a CyberSecurity expert to expose every possible route cybercriminals could use to perpetrate this crime and how to protect your social media accounts; especially in view of how critical social media is to creating wealth pre, amid and post COVID19.

#HoodOffChat – Are you over-sharing on the internet?

According to a study by DR. Mike Mcguire, Senior Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Surrey, social media-enabled cybercrime is generating $3.25B in global revenue each year.

A portion of this is enabled by users and their oversharing behaviors on social networking platforms. Such information is collated and analyzed to build a psychoanalytic profile which is then used to craft convincing lures, such as malicious links sent from a profile impersonating someone they know, as well as gain knowledge that may allow them to authenticate to other services such as email or banking websites.

This Webinar was a show-and-tell style event that provided clarity on how malicious actors use sensitive information shared on the internet & social networking platforms.

Our subject matter expert was Stephen Chapendama, a DevSecOps & Cybersecurity professional currently working for Fujitsu UK as Platforms Lead within the Advanced Threat Centre & also as Technology Manager for Foundervine.

We invite you to the second iteration of our webinar titled Closing the backdoor: How not to get hacked remotely (A Show-and-tell) which will hold on Friday, 17th April 2020 by 12 PM. This webinar will explore how remote access trojans are being used by cybercriminals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to its report titled “Mobile Malware Evolution 2019,” global cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab states that Nigeria is among the top 10 countries in the world where users are attacked by mobile malware. Also, Cybersecurity firm Palo Alto Networks has documented the 400 unique actors or groups involved in Business Email Compromise in Nigeria. Malware samples from 2014 to date, comprising of mainly remote access trojans from these groups have passed the 51,000 mark.

These statistics indicate that Nigeria is not only a target but also a hotbed for malicious actors that use Remote Access Trojans.
