APWG.EU Interactive Webinar - Protecting your organization from phishing attacks: a proactive approach

At this webinar, we will explore the growing problem of phishing attacks from various angles:

1. Phishing activity: the rising trend of phishing attacks worldwide, and where phishers find resources (which registrars, hosts, ASNs host the most phishing?)

2. A target's viewpoint: the experience of being a target and victim of phishing, and some examples of successful mitigation outreach.

3. An anti-phishing company's perspective: how can we detect and mitigate phishing attacks?

4. A hosting provider ́s point of view: how can hosts help victims? How can victims construct useful and actionable phishing reports?

Crane Hassold, independent social engineering expert and former FBI behavioral analyst, says the focus of his talk will include 'how new AI tools, like ChatGPT, could be exploited by cybercriminals to create more sophisticated phishing emails, and how these potential threats could be detected using existing technologies.'

John Bambenek, President of Bambenek Consulting, says, 'While we focus on threats to enterprises or politicians with outsized senses of importance, AI-driven threats will primarily be directed at consumers and end users who have no one to protect them and for losses so low law enforcement won't know what to do.'

Robert Flaim of Meta and John Wilson of Phishlabs will complete this discussion by illustrating proactive and mitigation strategies.


  • Moderated by Greg Aaron, APWG Senior Research Fellow
  • John Bambenek, Bambenek Labs
  • Robert Flaim, Meta
  • John Wilson, PhishLabs
  • Crane Hassold, former FBI Behavioral Analyst
