    Title: Cyber Security and your End-User – an anomaly – simultaneously a source of risk and a source of strength

    Synopsis: Cyber criminals will leverage technical vulnerabilities to gain and exercise their foothold in your organization but to do that they need access. Your end-user is typically the door on which the cyber-criminal will come knocking, looking to first leverage our human vulnerabilities and gain that access to your network. A good cyber security strategy will include layered defences and your end-user should play a critical role within this strategy.
