Press release: Security Awareness Training

Nine out of ten successful cyber-attacks start with a phishing email. Cybercriminals use sophisticated social engineering techniques to dupe unwary members of staff into opening malicious email attachments or clicking on bad links. According to a recent Datto survey, one in five SMBs has fallen victim to a ransomware attack. That same survey found that one of the main reasons organisations succumb to ransomware attacks is a lack of cyber security training. Modern Networks is pleased to announce we now offer Security Awareness Training (SAT).
