How Security Aware Are You?

According to a recent survey, 96% of executives failed to tell the difference between a real email and a phishing email 100% of the time* (source: McAfee Phishing Quiz, Intel Security).
Phishing and spear phishing have become increasingly popular attack strategies.  Today’s cyber criminals use phishing tactics to evade traditional spam and malware filters in order to wreak havoc on corporate infrastructures.

This goes back to our blog a few weeks ago around creating security awareness and bridging the gap between Security and end users (including/especially board members) can be a key ingredient to growing the budget and essentially creating a common language that is understood and put into practice. 
Initiating a corporate IT security responsibility that is developed and continually built upon is a hard subject to tackle. At ZeroDayLab we are seeing more and more companies come to us for this kind of training and expertise as the increase in the use of social engineering as a key tactic for cybercriminals now puts staff at the centre of an effective IT security strategy.  Success now depends on a more holistic approach that doesn't uniquely centre on technology solutions.  Whilst they are a critical part of the strategy, hackers have become more personal in their approach, tailoring their targets to an organisation and its employees.
