CyberSAFE Credential

A single email can lead to a multi-million dollar breach in seconds, and the employee responsible may not even be aware of their mistake. The problem lies in the fact that many end users aren’t aware of the dangers accompanying today’s most common cybersecurity threats, much less how to detect them. CyberSAFE helps ensure that your end users can identify the common risks associated with using conventional end-user technology, as well as how to safely protect themselves and their organizations from security risks.
