The State of Phishing and Email SecurityCofense's Tonia Dudley on What's Not Working, Threat Predictions
"Credential phishing is off the charts," says Tonia Dudley of Cofense. She discusses the challenge for organizations to strike a balance between having the right controls in place to block malicious emails and stopping the business from receiving legitimate emails.
"Start where you can. Look for your high-risk users, your executives and people that are handling sensitive data, and then train your users," she says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Dudley discusses:
- The state of phishing and email security;
- What is not working in our current email defenses;
- Threat predictions for the second half of 2022.
Dudley joined Cofense in 2018 as director, security solution adviser. In this role, she focuses on phishing defense advocacy while demonstrating how Cofense solutions help organizations across the globe minimize the impact of attacks while reducing the cost of operations. Dudley evangelizes Cofense's approach to phishing defense and incident response to new and existing customers, prospects, and the information technology market through speaking engagements, publishing platforms and media opportunities. She also advises Cofense product teams on specific customer and market-driven needs to help streamline product road maps and create Cofense's inaugural international customer advisory board.
