Battling Social Engineering AttacksKnowBe4's Stu Sjouwerman on the Need to Foster 'Human Firewalls'
Social engineering attacks, including ransomware, business email compromise and phishing, are a problem that can never be solved, but rather only managed via a continued focus on security awareness training, says Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4.
In a video interview at RSA Conference 2018, Sjouwerman discusses:
- The continuing rise in social engineering attacks, including phishing, ransomware and business email compromise, aka CEO fraud;
- Why the social engineering problem can be managed but never solved;
- The need to build "human firewalls."
Sjouwerman is the founder and CEO of KnowBe4. He previously co-founded Sunbelt Software.
