288: How ZeroFox Is Winning Fight Against Social Media Cybercrime on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn
While we have been busy concentrating on viruses, malware, firewalls, phishing attempts, and ransomware, how many of you reading this have ever thought about social media attacks and social media cyber crimes?
I invited James Foster, ZeroFOX’s CEO onto the show to discuss the growing issue of social media cybercrime. He also highlights specific attacks/scams plaguing Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, respectively, and explains his company’s role in keeping users safe.
ZeroFOX is a cyber security company based in Baltimore, Maryland with the tag of “We find the bad stuff on social media.” It provides cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) for organizations to detect risks found on social media and digital channels, such as phishing, malware, scams, impersonator accounts, piracy, counterfeit and more.
Foster also talks about what companies and individuals should be doing to protect themselves and what’s on the horizon in terms of future social media attacks.
ZeroFOX isn’t your traditional security company. No agents, no appliances, no software to install. It was also named “2017 Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner as a Leader in Social Media and Digital Security Recognized for Technical Innovation and Financial Performance”
