As cyber criminals increasingly target people and focus on the human factor to activate their nefarious campaigns, employees find themselves in the line of fire.

With 90% of attacks using email as the threat vector, it is critical that organizations work to raise cyber security awareness and change human behavior in relations to protecting against phishing and malware scams. Criminals know the easiest way to access networks or steal data to target people who already have access and steal their login credentials and other critical information.

By bringing cyber security awareness and training to all your employees, you heighten the chances of catching a scam or attack before it is fully enacted, minimizing damage to your brand and
reducing the cost of recovery.
