WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ZeroFox (Nasdaq: ZFOX), a leading external cybersecurity provider, will participate in a webinar through the SANS Institute about the importance of executive protection on Jan. 24, 2023 at 1 p.m. EST. AJ Nash, ZeroFox’s VP & Distinguished Fellow of Intelligence, will speak alongside Jeff Daisley, Senior Security Intelligence Engineer at Comcast and former lead analyst at the U.S. Secret Service. The webinar is free to attend and will address the growing external attack surface and threats to high profile individuals; the benefits of an executive protection program; and best practices to create an effective executive protection strategy.
Targeted cyberattacks on executives are on the rise, and exposed PII for sale puts executives and organizations at an increased risk of spear phishing, ransomware, and social engineering. The cost of not taking executive protection seriously can be detrimental to a company’s bottom line.
“Each year, more company executives’ and employees’ personal data is exposed and marketed for sale by third parties in publicly searchable databases,” said AJ Nash, VP & Distinguished Fellow of Intelligence at ZeroFox. “In a world where the pool of security professionals is shrinking while the external attack surface is expanding, it’s never been more important – or more challenging – to protect leaders from external threats. As corporate security teams build effective executive protection strategies, ZeroFox is increasingly included because we reduce their workload through ongoing monitoring and automated removal of executive PII, account takeovers, impersonations, and physical threats.”
