An unfortunate recent technological truth is that it is not a matter of if you will be compromised, but when. Maintaining a strong defence in the world of Cyber Security is vital. Our actions as individuals or lack thereof are often the weakest link and primary reason for a breach to occur. All of us play a significant role, and we are the first line of defence for ourselves and our organizations.
Today’s Cyber criminals target employees to infiltrate organizations, relying on their ability to exploit curiosity, error, and even greed. Many employees are totally unprepared to identify suspicious or malicious content, putting themselves and the organizations they represent at risk. Criminals often utilize social engineering tactics to compromise employees and abuse their trust. They do so at all levels of an organization, therefore no one is immune to a potential breach.
This webinar will help MGI Worldwide members and their clients:
- Prepare and strengthen overall IT security strategy
- Provide effective, relevant, and interactive content to educate everyone on risks and modern Cyber Security tactics.
- Opportunity to equip yourself with the knowledge needed to protect you and your clients
The more everyone is educated on how to protect themselves, the better we can protect against a breach into our organizations or even into our own personal information.
