Your most critical data assets are potentially under daily assault, mostly from automated “bots” which are constantly scanning for vulnerabilities; and from amateurs who are like digital graffiti artists, looking for some thrills and fame at your expense.

With the recent situation relating to COVID-19, we have seen a huge increase in phishing attacks shaped as advisories from government and health authorities. In some cases, sophisticated state actors are using highly personalised “spear phishing” approaches to try and compromise the credentials of senior or sensitive individuals in order to access high value intellectual property, or personal information about others in the organisation for the next round of attacks until they obtain their goal – your data and intellectual property.

How secure is your organisation, really?
