When you hear the term cyber resilience, we mean the ability to bounce back from an adverse event and get back to running your business as seamlessly and as effortlessly as possible.
More than a year in and the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on many people’s physical and mental health. A distracted work-from-home experience paired with lower overall morale makes staffs more susceptible to threats, and cyber criminals will take full advantage. Today, phishing has remained a prevalent threat, and continues to rise in sophistication and frequency.
