About this talk

Last year, the federal government issued approximately $1.2 trillion in grant funding to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, and that number is expected to grow in 2023. For most organizations who receive a portion of this grant money, it’s an incredibly exciting and newsworthy event.

But unfortunately, when grant funding is made public, bad actors can take advantage. In one instance, cybercriminals stole more than $4 million in funding dollars from a single city government—all via email.

Your email environment is your most vulnerable attack surface, and earning public funds makes you a target. Join this webinar with Abnormal Security and Grants Office, to learn:

- How threat actors use grant funding announcements to find their next victim

- Which types of threats are most dangerous for recipients of grant funding

- How you can secure grant funding to increase your cybersecurity posture

Featuring key insight from Grants Office, this webinar provides critical information for every organization that receives federal funding.

Abnormal profiles known good behavior within your environment and analyzes over 45,000 signals to detect anomalies that deviate from the baseline. By understanding what is normal, Abnormal can block the malicious and unwanted emails that bypass other solutions.
