Threat actors aren’t stupid. Really, they’re not. They know that the best way into an organization’s network is through users. People are the weakest link in any cybersecurity strategy. Why spend countless hours trying to hack into a business system when a simple email spun up to look legit or a trusted website infected with adware can get a user to unwittingly hand over the keys to the castle?
Such is the state of cybersecurity today.

People remain the largest threat to an organization’s cybersecurity. The majority of today’s threats target users on the web and use email to direct users to view or download malicious content. Threats such as malware, ransomware, and phishing attacks use browser vulnerabilities and people’s trusting nature to gain a foothold into critical business systems where they can do real damage.
