Breaking news coming out of Washington, D.C., today that I wanted to share with you: the United States has launched a cyber-attack on Iran and is expecting Iran to retaliate.
What does this mean? According to the Washington Post, the Department of Homeland Security warns American-based businesses to expect increased Iranian hacking activity and advises them to protect themselves from a variety of malicious attacks and exploits.
Now more than ever, it is critical that you and your customers take proactive steps to protect against data-wiping malware, credential-stuffing exploits, and sophisticated spear-phishing attacks that are expected to occur imminently.
You can help solve this immediate need with CyberSAFE, an end-user security awareness training program that helps businesses of any size prepare their employees for exactly this type of situation - by enabling them to identify and avoid cyber threats before they turn into devastating losses. Studies show that implementing a company-wide cyber awareness training program can reduce incidents by up to 70%.
