TENAFLY, N.J., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Security Current, an information and collaboration community by CISOs for CISOs, today announced the release of its latest ebook, A CISOs Guide to Phishing and Malware by Joel Rosenblatt, which now is publicly available. The ongoing Security Current ebook series, A CISO's Guide to… provides insights and guidance on key issues facing today's CISO from a CISO's perspective.
In this ebook, Rosenblatt, director of information security for Columbia University, explores real-world examples of advanced targeted attacks via email and social media, demonstrating how these evolving threats are increasing an organization's business risks. More specifically, he explores attack vectors such as email that are being exploited as never before.
"As someone who deals with spear phishing, social engineering and malware daily, my goal in writing this ebook was to present my peers at organizations across industries with an in-depth assessment of the advanced email-based threats and the risks they pose," Rosenblatt said. "I also wanted to offer ways CISOs can confront those increasing risks and best practices for articulating the value of these tools to the C-suite."
Brian Lozada, Duff & Phelps CISO, commented: "This ebook provides valuable insight regarding the importance of the risk to the human element, as phishing is the gateway to many compromises that cripple organizations internally and damage the brand."
