Phishing for a Living

Presented by Naheed Bleecker

Vice President, Information Technology

Yes, there are professionals trying to extract information from you!

Firefighter, teacher, nurse and…. professional thief. These are all viable career choices.  Those who phish, vish, catfish, whale, waterhole (and other metaphoric verbs) prey upon people who are simply trying to do their own jobs. Sometimes the naive and generally helpful nature of most employees make organizations vulnerable to social engineering. Let’s discuss how we can continue to make our employees more vigilant about these criminal tactics, and build support for cyber security awareness programs in general.

 Naheed Bleecker is currently the Vice President of Information Technology at Cielo. She is responsible for the Global Infrastructure team, and acts as the CISO. Cielo has been named #1 in Global Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) by HRO Today Magazine. Prior to that she was a Senior IT Security Manager a CUNA Mutual Group, where she was responsible for the security awareness program, impacting over 4000 employees at multiple locations.  Ms. Bleecker realizes the importance of securing the most critical endpoint in the organization:  the human.  Ms. Bleecker has coordinated year-long initiatives such as testing, newsletters, and contests.  These efforts culminate in the annual October capstone events in recognition of NCSAM.  She attributes the success of her programs to the collaboration with other departments such as Communications, Privacy and Records Management.

Ms. Bleecker graduated from the University of Kentucky with a BA in English.  She has over 25 years of experience in information technology, and has worked in a variety of industries.  Her certifications include CISA, CISM, PMP, Six Sigma Black Belt and ISO 27001 Lead Implementer. Her volunteer work includes discussing concepts of internet safety for young people.
