#CyberAware: Crash Course in Phishing

It would be easy to feel defeated by the statistics continuously reported on cyber attacks. Even with an organization’s next-gen firewall, threat intelligence capabilities, and a host of sophisticated tech tools, threat actors still manage to access valuable data.

How is this happening? Here’s a hint: we’ve all seen them…those sneaky, often carefully crafted emails that lure us into giving up our valuable information. Yes, you guessed it… 

Phishing is the #1 cause of data breaches worldwide… and most organizations don’t even realize it.

But I have great news for you (and bad news for threat actors).  We all have the solution to defeat them. And that solution is you and me. We are the greatest security asset that an organization can deploy. 

In case you didn’t know, October is Cyber Security Awareness Month

Naturally, we thought we’d celebrate by giving away some of the most in-depth phishing resources we’ve ever released. Including:

  • Expert analysis of dozens of real phishing lures
  • Weekly 2-minute “How to Spot a Phish” video series
  • A white paper & webinar on how to turn employees into security MVPs
  • And of course, new content on our blog identifying threats as they arise in the wild

Throughout the month we’ll send you a few updates by email, just to make sure you don’t miss out on any of these goodies. If you are not subscribed to our blog, please fill out the form to receive updates.  

We’re excited to share some of our best content with you. Thanks for joining in the fight against cybercrime. If you haven’t already subscribed to our blog, do so for regular updates and more materials during National Cyber Security Awareness month.
