SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Andrew Klein, senior product manager at SonicWALL, Inc. , will present a session entitled "Freud and Phishing: The Psychology Behind Internet Scams" during the InfoSecurity Conference & Exhibition at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City on Tuesday, September 11.

Losses from phishing are estimated at $2.1 billion per year and climbing with over 23,000 new attacks being launched monthly. Klein will discuss the psychology and technology required to create successful phishing email scams, and provide some tips on how to identify and thwart these attacks.

Klein is a well-known speaker on both the technology and business impact of email-borne security threats. With more than 20 years of software development and product management experience, his current focus is eradicating the scourge of spam and phishing from inboxes everywhere. For SonicWALL, Klein has been instrumental in developing a "Phishing IQ Test," which nearly one million people around the world have taken to test their own ability to tell a legitimate email from a fraudulent one. The test continues to provide invaluable insights into consumer interaction with spoof email while educating the masses on telltale signs to know the difference. Klein's recent speaking engagements include ISSA, SANS, FTC Spam Summit, the Security Leadership Conference Series, RSA, ITEC, the MIT Spam Conference, NPR (Justice Talking) and the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.
