PhishMe CEO Rohyt Belani to Present Key Benefits of Using Military Grade Cyber Defense Tactics to Fortify Financial Services Organizations at FS-ISAC Summit

"Cybersecurity: Why are we Failing?" General Session Presentation Among FS-ISAC Annual Summit 2016 Highlights

LEESBURG, VA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2016) - PhishMe® Inc., the pioneer in human phishing defense solutions, today announced that Rohyt Belani, CEO and cofounder, will present at the FS-ISAC Annual Summit 2016 on May 4 in Miami, FL. Belani's presentation will focus on how military defense tactics can be used to strengthen cybersecurity, with emphasis on the important role effective human intelligence gathering and behavior conditioning plays in defensive programs.

Security spending is on the rise particularly in the financial services space. Last year, more than 70 percent of bank CIOs reported plans to increase security spending, with nearly 40 percent expecting increases ranging from 20 to 100 percent. Despite this increased investment in security technologies, organizations continue to experience higher volumes of breaches at increasing magnitudes.

Countless high-profile data breaches, as evidenced in the latest Verizon Data Breach Investigations Reports (DBIR), over the past year have cost organizations hundreds of billions of dollars. The report alarmingly revealed that organizations are still failing to address basic security issues and well-known attack methods, further demonstrating that many of the technologies in use are failing to respond to rising threats, which include everything from phishing to malware infections to point of sale (POS) intrusions. Cyber defense programs must incorporate crucial human-generated intelligence to combat pervasive threats, such as spear-phishing attacks and ransomware. Belani's presentation will take a comprehensive approach to leveraging human intelligence using evidence from real-world data breaches, and demonstrate how to operationalize effective military defense tactics that engage humans as an added layer of security.

"The military utilizes the strength of humans as a critical part of defense, and the increasing use of cyberattacks in global conflicts indicates a need to apply this principle within all industries, especially highly regulated sectors like finance and banking," says Rohyt Belani, CEO of PhishMe. "In-depth defense programs that effectively combine best in class security technologies with human-generated intelligence feeds not only improve overall defensive postures but will drastically reduce exposure and build better resiliency against future attacks."
