May 27, 2020 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm 


Chris’ presentation will focus on the social engineering aspects of cybercrime.  Referencing his new theory, RESCAT (Required Elements of a Social Engineering Cyber Attack Theory), he will explain how cybercriminals are able to manipulate our responses to phishing and other malicious forms of cyberattacks, that can result in users of technology becoming cybervictims.

He will also present a new perspective on why methods of educating users of technology to become more cyber-safe and cyber-savvy are not addressing a key element that is inhibiting users of technology from being able to become more aware of cyber intrusions and cyber threats.
