Cyber criminals are weaponizing advanced tactics, including intricate social engineering campaigns, to carry out malicious activities.

Last year, social engineering attempts rose by 464%. Often a result of social engineering attempts, ransomware attacks have reportedly increased by 90%.

Amidst this unsettling attack landscape, it can be difficult and stressful to secure data and networks effectively.
