Cybercrime is Booming, But Defense is More Efficient ( and Affordable) Than Ever
Although 2020 has been a banner year for cybercrime, especially ransomware, companies that take smart precautions against cybercrime are experiencing good results. Even companies that just put a few additional provisions in place to fight back against the surge are having success in keeping the bad guys out of their systems and data. Plus there is even more good news on that front – quarterly security awareness training reduces a company’s risk of a cybersecurity incident by up to 70%.

MFA is a top recommendation from the FBI on how to reduce the chance of success for cyberattacks like credential stuffing.
