Lately, we're seeing the words "cyber attacks" in the news more often then we want to, reports of credit card theft & schemes, cyber blackmail & ransom attempts (Leumi Card?!), cyber attacks that paralyze organizations or countries, sophisticated phishing incidents etc.

Viruses, Trojan, DDos, Spear phishing, zero-day attacks, key logger, RansomWare, root kit, exploits, APT and the list keeps going on and on…

The list above is only a small part of the threats that information security & cyber departments face every single day.

Let me throw in another interesting piece of data to the equation – More than 90% of successful cyber attacks begin and end with social engineering!

• In my lecture, I'll try to explain what is the meaning of Cyber, what's the difference between cyber and information security, I'll tell you stories about cyber attacks (What really happened in Sony?) and give some advice regarding cyber awareness at home and in your work place.
