Hackers laugh at your "security"

You may think that your company can prevent an intruder from entering your door - but chances are that at least one of your employees is more likely to invite hackers for coffee.

Indeed, despite years of scary tactics, most companies still have no idea how to manage a "scary" incident in cyberspace, according to a penetration tester who claims that his team never failed to get passwords from various companies.

More than 13% of respondents said they have been victims of online phishing (Phishing), while over 9% were unsure.
