Subscribers are under constant attack from smishing scams, and now the Flubot threatens even more subscribers with trojan spyware. Join this webinar to learn more about how malicious URLs sent over SMS are able to flourish, and what can be done to stem the tide on SMS phishing, Flubot, and other malware attacks.

Cellusys welcomes Fabrizio Salanitri, CEO of Horisen, Mark Gaudet, of CIRA, and Paul Walsh, CEO of MetaCert to lend their expertise in SMS, phishing, and malware in a conversational webinar for anyone concerned about the recent plague of SMS attacks.

He also sits on the board of directors for the Halifax IXP and on the ICTC National Cyber Security Leadership Council on Youth and Education.
