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.
