- Employee's Role

Employees are a business’ greatest asset which makes them the greatest target, as well. For our organizations they can be our first and best line of defense, or they can be our weakest link. 

- Phish Attacks

90% of breaches occur through a phish attack. This is why it is so important to train your employees on social engineering, phishing, and the red flags. When seeing red flags: Stop, look and think.  Some red flags are unknown sender, urgent sound to the email, grammatical errors, and typos. If any of these red flags are seen, employees need to report this to the security team or IT.
