Topic:  It only takes ONE!  It is becoming more important than ever to focus on improving the security awareness of all employees.  Remember, it only takes one employee as an unaware agent of a threat actor to succeed once and expose your organization.  Lior will present actual case studies that will highlight some of the tactics used to succeed in attacking both countries and companies and provide practical recommendations on what you can be doing within your company.  He will also share some of the methods he uses himself while carrying out social engineering drills to simulate how these operations look from the attacker's perspective.
