Cybersecurity Training for Remote Working
Turn Your Remote Workers Into Cyber Defense Allies
Remote work has become a new reality for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Independent from market volatility and geopolitical challenges, it's here to stay.
It's a myth that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are exempt from cyber attacks. Contrary, the rapid and ongoing escalation in the range of cyber threats in remote and hybrid work has become overwhelming. SME leaders face higher cyber risk:
- 66% of SMEs had a cyber incident in the last two years,
- 50% go out of business within six months after a ransomware attack.
SMEs often lack the financial resources and skill set to combat the emerging cyber threat. At the same time, the human factor bears the most significant risk.
