Why train your employees regularly?
It may not be news to you that ransomware is on the rise, but the numbers may leave you shocked. In 2020 alone, there were close to 300 million ransomware attacks worldwide.
Humans are usually the weakest link in your security strategy:
Your employees are a risk for the following reasons:
• Poor decisions resulting from heavy workloads.
• Distractions associated with working from home.
• Insufficient knowledge of red flags to look for.
• The forgetting curve, which is just as steep as the learning curve.

Help personnel understand their role in preventing data breaches.
Lower the likelihood of falling for phishing scams.
Teach employees how to effectively avoid cyber breaches.
