End Users: Turning Your Weakest Link into your Strongest Defense
Available On Demand
You and your customers rely heavily on security solutions to provide a layered defense against cyberattacks. But there’s a weak spot in your security strategy that cybercriminals are only too happy to exploit: your customers’ end users. The success rates of targeted phishing and social engineering tactics mean end users are the easiest path for cybercriminals to infiltrate defenses.
So, why are users such an easy target, and what can you do to change that?
In this interactive webcast, join regular Channel Futures contributor, Nick Cavalancia, and Dan Fox from Webroot as they discuss:
- The state of threats vs. security, and who’s winning the battle
- User insecurity: why a lack of a “security culture” is to blame
- Turning your weakest link into your strongest defense with security awareness training
