OIPA to host cybersecurity event in Tulsa

June 26, 2018
TOPICS: OIPA, In the news
When we think of threats to our cybersecurity in the oil and natural gas industry, we typically picture hooded hackers in dark rooms feverishly typing away on keyboards, attempting to crack passwords or smash through firewalls.

The truth is, many cyber criminals looking to steal a company’s data need look no further than social media and your office’s front desk to get all the access they need to steal confidential information from your company, your employees and you.

The act of deceptively engaging employees in order to crack an organization’s security and rob them blind is called Social Engineering, and the OIPA is teaming up with our Partner, Alias Forensics, to host a Lunch and Learn on Tuesday, July 17 at the One Warren Place auditorium in Tulsa to show attendees just how easy it is to convince you and your employees to volunteer information that can crush your business. Representatives from Alias will discuss the ins and outs of Social Engineering, which includes actual footage of vishing phone calls, physical breaches, phishing emails and the most alarming examples of insider threats.

By the end of this lunch and learn, attendees will have a better understanding of the major components of Social Engineering and what steps they can take to protect themselves, their companies and their employees. Once attendees see Social Engineering live and in color, they’ll never look at cybercrime the same way again.

The event will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at One Warren Place Auditorium, 6100 S. Yale Ave. in Tulsa. Both space and parking are limited, and RSVPs will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
