Many organizations contain hardened external infrastructures that successfully block many common attacks; however, attackers are using clever phishing emails to penetrate an organization's technical controls and obtain a foothold in the target's internal network. This presentation covers the basics of phishing email attacks and the common methods and tactics that an attacker may use to not only trick your employees to open a malicious email, but also sidestep many of the technical controls currently in place. We will take an inside look through the eyes of an attacker to better defend against the high risk threat that phishing emails pose to an organization.
