Join TSC as they present Sarah Pfabe, TSC alumni and an information security analyst at UPMC to speak about the dangers of phishing and what organizations do to protect against it on Tuesday, November 5th at 4:30 pm in the Wheatley Atrium. She will go through everything from what makes a phishing email, to the tools analysts use to examine and detonate malware. An overview of working in a Security Operations Center and job opportunities at UPMC will also be a part of this presentation.
Information about phishing: Phishing is one of the ways hackers attempt to gain access to your personal information via your computer or smartphone. These attacks often rely on the same basic strategy: to trick you into providing sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by making you think the request is coming from a trusted source such as your bank, credit card company, a colleague, or friend. No organization, large or small, is immune to the dangers that phishing emails present.
Students will receive 1 hour of SET credit. Pizza will be provided.
It’s not too late to register for the upcoming Hackathon event! The event will be held this Saturday, October, 19th.
