In today's interconnected world, the need for robust cybersecurity measures is more critical than ever. With cyber threats becoming increasingly sophisticated, organizations must prioritize equipping their employees with the knowledge and skills necessary to defend against these malicious attacks. And if we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times, your employees can either be your weakest link or your first line of defense against security breaches.

In 2022 alone, over 422 million people were affected by data compromises, including data breaches, leakage, and exposure in just under 2k data breaches. For a person, this could mean identity theft, loss of money. For a business, it could mean entire networks are ransomed for information, meaning not just loss of data and money, but lost client data and subsequent regulatory fines and loss of business reputation. In short, a disaster. And just like our name suggests, it is FAR BETTER to be proactive and prevent loss than to scurry after the fact and do damage control. Which, for what it is worth, we do breach remediation as well.
