Presentation Title: Don't Trust Your Inbox 
Speaker: Chelsee Purvis
Speaker's Title - Zero Trust Specialist Solutions Engineer

Presentation Abstract - As organizations look to adopt new security principles and network architectures like Zero Trust, they leave a critical gap – email. Around 91% of all cyber-attacks begin with a phishing email, and newer attacks like Business Email Compromise directly impact the bottom line. Moreover, these attacks don’t need sophisticated malware or network intrusion to succeed; they exploit the implicit trust we place in our email communications. Join this session to: learn how phishing attacks use trust and business logic as attack techniques, get common success criteria used for evaluating Zero Trust and anti-phishing solutions, and see how Zero Trust principles can be extended to email.
