2021 has seen an increase in breaches and cyber incidents. Threat actors are finding new and inventive ways to exploit weakness. Most occur when employees are not fully trained on how to identify cyber issues, policies are not being followed, and third-party systems are not fully vetted or secured. Well informed employees are better equipped to protect themselves and your firm against cyber threats.
