Phishing attacks have increased more than 400% in the past 12 months, resulting in organizations experiencing 12.2 incidents each month. However, did you know that 95% of cybersecurity breaches are successful due to human error?

Google data centers are protected by state-of-the-art security infrastructure, which makes it virtually impossible to breach directly using technology-focused attacks. But even such a robust IT infrastructure can’t protect your Google Workspace (G Suite) data from human error.

Human error is an unpatchable weakness in any data protection plan and threat actors are exploiting this by leveraging increasingly sophisticated social engineering tactics and tools with great success.

Join Shyam Oza, Spanning Director of Product Management and Brian Doty, Channel Development Manager as they discuss the business and technical trends driving the growth of social engineering attacks and how with the right tools and strategies, you can keep these threats where they belong — away.

The webinar covers:

  • How COVID-19 and the rapid increase in remote work accelerated the growth of social engineering attacks.
  • Why Google Workspace (G Suite) is particularly vulnerable to social engineering threats.
  • Why you, not Google, are responsible for managing social engineering attacks.
  • Actionable strategies and tactics to protect your Google Workspace (G Suite) data from social engineering attacks.
