Dave Baggett, Founder and CEO of INKY Technology
Ron Gula, President of Gula Tech Adventures
Account Takeover Attacks (ATO) and Business Email Compromise (BEC) are most definitely on the rise and the two biggest problems facing security teams in 2020.
Criminals are using tactics that are designed to slip through legacy gateway protection. Dave Baggett, CEO of INKY Technology will take you on an in-depth look, using real world examples, of the latest deceptive tricks being used to circumvent these secure email gateways.
In addition, he will discuss the real ATO concern – third party ATO. You can’t make your vendors implement multi-factor authentication, so what happens when their accounts get taken over and send your users emails? Dave will walk you through the latest technique to prevent this.

He has his finger on the pulse of today’s cyber landscape and will give his insights into managing and measuring cyber risk.
