• Cybercriminals never take a vacation. In fact, 2020 gave them reason and renewed motivation to ramp up their nefarious efforts. Phishing incidents nearly doubled in frequency from 2019 to 2020, from 114,702 incidents in 2019, to 241,324 incidents in 2020, according to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Overall, phishing reigned as the most common type of cyber crime last year, according to the FBI. 

  • The idea that technology can prevent all cyber-related incidents has never been further from the truth because cybercriminals know the easiest way in is through your humans.

Many organizations fall into the trap of trying to use technology as the only means of defending their networks and forget that the power of human awareness and intervention is paramount in arriving at a highly secured state.
