Published on

Deploying an army of cyber-security solutions doesn’t mean that your organization’s data is safe. Despite all the information and security solutions out there, North American companies are still not fully aware of the dangers that hackers, social media, and insider threats pose on the organization’s data and reputation.
Truth is, the average user doesn’t really know how to protect themselves... which is ironic, because employees are the #1 cause of security threats today.

As the one in charge of your organization’s IT security, it is on your shoulders to prevent and fix threats caused by the users you support. Join our panel of security experts on September 26th at 11am PDT and discover the top 7 ways employees cause cybercrime infections (plus learn best practices on how to fix them once and for all)!
