Flash Talk: Phishing in LATAM

Flash Talks is an exclusive Flashpoint speaker series during which our analysts share insights gleaned from global cyber and physical landscapes.



A phishing attack uses social engineering techniques to acquire personal information, such as login usernames and passwords. Latin America lags behind the rest of the world in terms of cybercrime sophistication. Phishing attacks don’t require the need of elaborate knowledge or experience. Cybercriminals deploy basic social engineering methods in the pursuit of personally identifiable information and banking credentials. Phishing in Latin America has shown a consistent increase, being specifically popular in Brazil, Peru, and Argentina. 

Senior Latin American Business Risk Intelligence Analyst, Delfina Chain will discuss different types of phishing attacks, how hackers obtain their knowledge and how victims can better protect themselves.
