TODAY’S CYBER ATTACKS TARGET PEOPLE, NOT JUST TECHNOLOGY. And people are busy. They’re distracted. Sometimes they click the wrong things. Even your best people can open the wrong email, fall victim to fraud, and make the same digital mistakes we all make. People are your greatest business asset—and your weakest security and compliance link.

Join us in exploring the human centric side of cybersecurity! Phishing and social engineering are the starting point for 93% of all data breaches. 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.

Hope to see you all there.
