Sensei Officers Featured in Virginia Business Magazine
May 5, 2022
An article entitled “Cyberwar Zone – Biden, experts warn businesses attacks are coming”, published in the May 2022 issue of Virginia Business Magazine, features insights from Sensei’s Sharon Nelson and John Simek.
Most breaches rely on an employee clicking a link, sharing a password, keeping sensitive information in a vulnerable place, or failing to set up safety nets such as multifactor authentication.
And cybercriminals are getting progressively better at exploiting these weaknesses, says Sharon Nelson, president of Fairfax-based cybersecurity firm Sensei Enterprises Inc.
“This moves at the speed of light,” she says. “You wake up and there is something new out there every single day that you haven’t seen before.”
Nelson and Sensei Vice President John Simek say criminals are increasingly using social engineering to gain victims’ trust and get them to turn over sensitive information. For example, a bad actor may do research to discover who a company’s IT services provider is, then call that person and claim they’re with that company and need login credentials.
