Reducing the Risk of Online Fraud Workshop


Event Details

  • Date:

We’ve all heard the warning about email phishing attacks: Don’t click on suspicious links or attachments in an email. Hackers can infect your computer with a virus or get access to sensitive information. Earlier this month a massive global email attack crippled computer systems in nearly 100 countries including Vietnam. Attacks like these have many people thinking. Would you know a fake phishing email if you saw one? Would your staff or suppliers know a fake phishing email if they saw one?

Phishing has emerged as a major threat to businesses everywhere, with the number of companies reporting various attacks rising rapidly. Yet the nature of the damage done by such attacks remains poorly understood – and is much broader than many imagine. A multinational company operating in Vietnam recently suffered losses due to a fraud that started with phishing. No one is immune to attack and 30 percent of fake mails do get through antivirus/firewall protection. However, you can take precautions to reduce the risk of your company becoming the next victim. Join AmCham’s non-technical workshop on June 23 where you can learn in plain language how to:

  • Implement a policy to address this risk.
  • Greatly reduce your risk of being attacked.
  • Recognize different kinds of phishing emails.
  • Identify what the criminals are after.
  • Minimize this risk from your suppliers and customers.

Case studies will be presented together with references and materials, plus, a guideline that can reduce your risk substantially within days simply by conducting internal training programs.
