The attack on Twitter in mid July enabled attackers to take control of major accounts with millions of followers, and collect over $100,000 through a Bitcoin scam. We subsequently learned that this was achieved by a spear-phishing attack sent to Twitter staff, giving the attackers full control over a subset of accounts.

In this webinar, we will look at the incidents that enabled the attack, what companies can do to ensure that phishing messages do not succeed and if extra solutions are needed to better detect and prevent phishing messages from getting to your employees.

Key takeaways:

  • How the attack on Twitter was successful
  • Why you need to limit employee access to sensitive user details
  • How to evaluate a better phishing solution
