Employees are always the weakest link in any security program. In fact, 98% of all data breaches involve internal human error in some way. Cyber security training is a useful tool to ensure employees are properly trained for their roles within the firm, but training is only as good as its impact on behavior. Phishing services can assist in reinforcing learned habits and maintaining awareness for employees.
