Evaluate and assess your current risks by identifying knowledge gaps and data that may have already been exposed (dark web).
Implement a proactive training approach to reduce employee cyber risk by delivering effective, easy to use computer-based security awareness training to strengthen your users’ knowledge in core areas of security.
Simulate, measure, and communicate the key threats and techniques like phishing, social engineering, and password hygiene (brute force attacks). In addition, conduct mock-phishing exercises that analyzes employee vulnerability to targeted attacks.
