Proofpoint’s Security Awareness Platform, combined with Managed Services, helps companies train users to be the first and last line of defense when it comes to cyber security. Learn from the leaders in email security on how to protect yourself in today’s threat landscape. Get a taste for the real-world threats that organizations face every day, and the different job opportunities around them.
