JERSEY CITY, N.J., April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- (ISC)2 New Jersey Chapter, is excited to announce Rohyt Belani, Co-Founder & CEO of PhishMe® (www.phishme.com), the leading provider of human phishing defense solutions, as a keynote speaker for its annual Social Engineering Prevention Conference SECON2017 held May 25, 2017 at New Jersey City University.

The conference offers two keynote presentations from industry leaders, interactive workshops, and "hands-on" exercises on social engineering. The program includes two Keynote CISO panels and a lively discussion on social engineering impact on security. Attendees will learn about implications of social engineering and mitigating strategies. Members of the New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell (NJCCIC) will be on hand to answer questions or concerns.

Social engineering is pervasive and this conference has something for both business and technical attendees. Learn how to protect yourself, family and business from the dangers of social engineering.

Belani's presentation on Collective Security will demonstrate how to implement new practices to avoid becoming a victim of ransomware and spear-phishing from exploring the nature of shared threat detection as well as lessons you can learn on harnessing the power of humans to build strong defense-in-depth programs. 

"In the cyber world, social engineering attacks originate predominantly via email," notes Belani. "It's an honor to be sharing insights at SECON2017 on how a human-focused, collective approach to security can drastically strengthen an organization's defense posture and reduce exposure to phishing threats."

Prior to PhishMe, Belani was the co-founder and CEO of Intrepidus Group, (acquired by NCC Group Plc), Managing Director at Mandiant, Principal Consultant at McAfee's Foundstone division, and a Researcher at the Software Engineering Institute. He was also an Adjunct Professor at Carnegie Mellon University for five years.
