Title: A New Cyber Vulnerability: Executive Digital Footprints


As hackers shift from traditional hard targets to softer targets, security professionals must evolve as well. While certain hackers will always look to penetrate a company’s internal servers, many threat actors now prefer to target “human hard drives” or a company's executives.  As a result, many security professionals are now responsible for reviewing the digital footprints left by every member of the C-suite and other employees in critical positions in their efforts to disrupt external threats. Learn why cyber criminals are shifting their habits and how to increase awareness among executives. Explore easy-to-implement tactics to counter these new threats.
