Looking at the current cyber attacks, it's clear that ransomware, phishing, CEO Fraud, and W-2 scams are on the rise—costing organizations billions of dollars in 2018 alone. It got us thinking, what security measures are actually effective with this ever-changing threat landscape? Are technological defenses enough? Is it really necessary or feasible for you to train and test end-users to the point of becoming a human firewall? Is a human firewall even helpful if antivirus, firewalls, email security, etc. are already in place?

Join our team of experts as we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of a technology-only approach and whether end-users can actually be trained to the point of reducing organizational risk. Learn the facts, so you can decide how best to invest your time and money to make sure your organization gets the best bang out of your security budget buck.
