Identities are being stolen everyday. Reputations are being ruined. Your money is being stolen by the bad guys. But why? Partly because of lack of training.

A study finds that 90% of people have had no recent cybersecurity training and 68% of people have NEVER had security training. It is no wonder that identity theft affects millions of people each year. Much of this could be avoided with the proper training.

It is my humble opinion that EVERYONE who uses a computer should complete numbers 1. and 2. below. Don’t forget to try the free anti-phishing game Anti-Phishing Phil as well.
