NTT America to Sponsor Webinar - Battling New Age Thieves: 5 Ways to Stop Social Engineering Attacks

Feb 24, 2009 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- NTT America, the U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corp. (NTT Com) and an IP network services provider, will sponsor a webinar, "Battling New Age Thieves: 5 Ways to Stop Social Engineering Attacks," on Thursday, February 26, at 2 pm EST.

The webinar will be hosted by Kevin Prince, Chief Architect at Perimeter eSecurity, and he will cover the top five ways you can prevent these attacks, saving your organization and customers from the aggravation of data and identity theft.

Traditional attacks target the computer and the network, and companies have worked diligently on various technologies to prevent these attacks. Social engineering increases the threat, as hackers attempt to manipulate your employees and customers to obtain confidential information such as passwords and account numbers. Prince will discuss the top methods used by thieves and the ways attacks can be prevented from happening in the first place.

"Most companies tend to focus strictly on technology to prevent system attacks, but with the value of private data increasing you need to be aware that data thieves are using social manipulation to get confidential information," said Kevin Prince, Chief Architect at Perimeter eSecurity. "It's important to understand what social engineering is, how it works and how your employees are your best line of defense." "We are pleased to sponsor a webinar that can give our customers and the business community at large valuable insight into the growing array of security threats," said Wayne Lambert, Director of Product Management at NTT America. "Our goal is to provide education on social engineering and how to prevent this behavior. This, along with the technology-based suite of tools we offer, is the right combination to keep our customers' data as secure as possible." Event Information: ((Comments on this story may be sent to
