Abstract: To date, cybercrimes seriously threaten organisations' businesses and reputations. Phishing remains the most reliable, low-cost initial attack vector for cybercriminals worldwide*. Despite email having been around for a long time, we are still struggling to secure it. This is partially due to email protocols not being designed with security in mind but also due to the susceptibility of users to open unknown links that appear legitimate to them. During the seminar, we will uncover attackers’ and defenders’ techniques and what we can do to stimulate better cybersecurity habits as security awareness professionals.

*According to the “ENISA Threat Landscape 2022” Report.
