PhishMe Inc. to Present at RSA 2013 & Security B-Sides San Francisco

CEO Rohyt Belani to Discuss Phishing Attacks & How to Protect SCADA Systems at B-Sides; Will Participate in RSA Panel Presentation on End User Security & Social Engineering Attacks

Feb 20, 2013, 14:14 ET from PhishMe Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PhishMe Inc., the leader in spear-phishing awareness training, today announced that its CEO and co-founder, Rohyt Belani, will present at both Security B-Sides and RSA 2013 in San Francisco next week. Co-presenting with Brandon Dunlap of non-profit EnergySec, Rohyt will explain why spear-phishing attacks are a major threat to U.S. critical infrastructure – namely, our Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. As the U.S. still tops the charts for providing the most comfortable hosting platforms for phishing sites internationally, the panelists will discuss the highly controversial approaches to U.S. offensive and defensive cyber strategy moving forward.  

At RSA 2013, Rohyt will take the stage with Mike Murray, Managing Partner of MAD Security and Tim Wilson, Editor of DarkReading, to offer a look at the most common social engineering methods used to fool enterprise employees, and the potential impact of users' failure to maintain good security policies. The speakers will address enterprise security awareness programs, pointing out flaws in many current programs and giving advice. This is sure to be a hard-hitting panel with participants from both sides of the security awareness spectrum.
