Studies have shown that over 90% of cyber attacks start with a phishing email and that phishing is the main ingredient of most successful data breaches. While training employees not to click on unknown attachments can help, the reality is that human nature makes 100% prevention impossible. Thankfully, there are other strategies for assessing your vulnerability and increasing your overall security posture to prevent cybercriminals from entering your network. In this podcast, RANE Senior Advisor for Cyber and Information Rhea Siers interviews Ondrej Krehel, CEO & Founder of LIFARS, an international Cybersecurity Intelligence, Digital Forensics, and Incident Response firm based in New York City. Prior to LIFARS, he was the CISO of IDT911, a leading identity theft recovery and data breach management service, and he conducted forensic investigations and cybersecurity consulting at Stroz Friedberg, including various US government engagements and military cyber special operations. His experience covers a wide range of cyber resiliency matters, from data breaches and theft of intellectual property to anti-money laundering and financial fraud.
