The Evolution of Phishing From Email to SMS and Voice HacksKnowBe4's Roger Grimes on Why MFA Alone Isn't a Successful Hack Prevention Strategy
Phishing is no longer restricted to just emails. As attackers broaden their arsenal, businesses today also need to be on the lookout for impersonation attempts via SMS text messages or voice calls, says Roger Grimes, a data-driven defense evangelist at KnowBe4.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Grimes also discusses:
- Why phishing-resistant MFA is superior to conventional MFA;
- The role that culture plays in driving good cybersecurity behaviors;
- How users and companies can detect smishing and vishing hacks.
Grimes is a 30-year computer security consultant, instructor, holder of dozens of computer certifications and an award-winning author of 10 books and over 1,000 magazine articles on computer security. He has worked at some of the world's largest computer security companies, including Foundstone, and has served as a weekly security columnist for InfoWorld and CSO magazines since 2005.
