BT/KPMG Paper Calls on Business Leaders to Build a Culture of Security
There are members of the infosec community who continue to call for a technical-only solution to phishing prevention, one that cuts end users out of the equation entirely.

Black Hat 2017 Takeaways: Treating the Root of End-User Risk
Last week, I got to spend time with many other members of the security community at Black Hat USA 2017.

Short on Security Awareness Training Staff? Try Our Managed Services.
Even with healthy security budgets, infosec teams can find themselves short on resources. Countless studies and articles have noted that good IT talent is hard to find, which means that security teams are still having to do more with less. And even those organizations that are not experiencing a personnel crunch could still be feeling the pinch on the cybersecurity education side. After all, staff members who are highly skilled at managing technical resources often lack the experience ...
