Staying at the cutting edge of cybersecurity protections can be overwhelming in the ever-growing, shifting digital world.

In this webcast, we look at two attack methods in particular—spear phishing and ransomware—that use people as the entry point to data and assets. To help you minimize risk, we will provide an overview of what you and your organization can do to thwart these attacks.

Another very real and ever-growing threat to security is the Internet of Things (IoT), a network of devices that can send and receive data. While these devices offer many benefits by providing luxury and convenience for homes and workplaces and by improving efficiencies, their increased prevalence means increased vigilance for companies.
