What?

Cyber attacks are almost impossible to predict but with sufficient prevention methods, their impact can be minimalised. From Wi-Fi hacking to Ransomware, cyber attacks come in all shapes and sizes.

Social engineering is the latest way in to hit your company wallet and more and more ways into a computer are via the weakest link – the human.
