    Abstract: This study presents an integrated information processing model of phishing susceptibility grounded in prior research in information process and interpersonal deception. The model is refined and validated on a sample of intended victims of an actual phishing attack. The data provides strong support for the model’s theoretical structure and causative sequence, explaining close to fifty percent of the variance in individual phishing susceptibility. The results indicate that most phishing emails are peripherally processed and individuals make decisions based on simple cues embedded in the email. Interestingly, urgency cues in the email stimulated increased information processing thereby short circuiting the resources available for attending to other cues that could potentially help detect the deception. Additionally, the findings suggest that habitual patterns of media use combined with high levels of email load have a strong and significant influence on individuals’ likelihood to be phished. Consistent with social cognitive theory, computer self-efficacy was found to significantly influence elaboration, but its influence was mitigated by domain specific-knowledge. The presentation covers the model, its tests, the findings of the study, as well as the ways in which individuals can reduce their susceptibility to phishing based deception.

      Welcome to the 6th edition of InfoVision - The Knowledge Summit Series.


      “SMAC (Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud) is smart”

      SMAC is the latest acronym to enter the jargon-filled technology space. SMAC--an acronym for Social, Mobility, Analytics, and Cloud has entered the business conversations in a big way. Experts and business heads believe that SMAC will help companies to ride the next wave of business opportunities and is also expected to help Indian companies to innovate and move away from traditional business models. Industry veterans see an integrated SMAC to change the way companies do business in future. Based on the industry trending, a unified Social, Mobile, Analytics (Big Data predominantly) and Cloud based solutions appear to be the 'next big thing'.

      The combined potential of SMAC technologies is estimated to be $70 billion to $200 billion over the next three years. And, that's the reason why most of the software vendors today are betting on SMAC. Research firm Gartner terms it as the nexus of four IT forces — cloud, social, mobile, and information (in other words analytics). Those forces, along with the continued impact of consumer spending, are expected to essentially set the stage for the next generation of capabilities that drive new business scenarios.
