Are you ready to take a proactive approach to security for your organization? You can improve your “human firewall” with security education, dark web assessment, phishing tests, and more for your employees!

Ransomware is an epidemic for small to midsize businesses, and email phishing scams continue to be the attack vector of choice for cybercriminals. However, technology alone cannot provide 100% infallible security defense. So what’s the next step after you’ve hardened your perimeter defense solutions, like your firewall? Educate your employees to avoid common security threats!

Security reports reveal that 95% of data breaches are caused by employee error. Without proper training to spot and avoid falling victim to phishing attempts, employees will continue be the weakest link in an organization’s security defense. OXEN Technology’s Breach Prevention & Security Awareness Services help transform your employees from your weakest link into your strongest defense.
