VISHING awareness week Seminar


an educational seminar

This Year’s Capstone Seminar is on:

Understanding the Telephone as a Threat Vector

Cybersecurity is a daunting and uncomfortable topic and much of the news, social posts and communications are about organizations who have been breached, or stories of organizational failures which have led to substantial loss. Vishing Awareness Week is about empowering people through education, information and resources.

The bottom line is that the more you understand this threat vector, the better you can protect yourself and your organization.
