Becoming a Threat

82% of data breaches reviewed in the 2022 Verizon Data Breach Incident Report involved the human element. Well, a threat actor is human too. What if we walked in the shoes of a threat actor and can counter human thought processes to help organizations build more resilient defense models against intrusions and attacks?  

In this session, Sherrod DeGrippo, Vice President, Proofpoint’s worldwide Threat Research, will guide you to:

  • Build a process for creating and sending a malicious threat campaign 
  • Design your plan of attack
  • Analyze a threat actor’s mindset   
  • Review and evaluate email attack chains
