In case you missed it, a February 2009 TechRepublic Webcast, "Top IT Security Threats: How to Protect Your Users from Increasingly Sophisticated Attacks" proved to be popular among members. Our moderator James Hilliard spoke to representatives from PhoneFactor (the sponsor), a provider of two-factor authentication solutions.
Here is what the 45-minute Webcast covered:
- Why and how users are being targeted
- Top threats, including new trends and methodologies
- Established vulnerabilities that are continually going unaddressed
- The role of out of band, two-factor authentication in preventing attacks
Not surprisingly, it touts the benefits of tokenless, two-factor authentication, but it's also a good rundown of current threats, including targeted phishing, malware, and man-in-the-middle attacks.
The Webcast is now available on-demand, so you can listen/view at your convenience.
