Being protected against accidental or deliberate loss of information from an organization or its customers is a critical factor for any company's continuing success and survival.
When a company becomes the target of a cyber-attack, the main penetration technique first targets the organization's users. Due to insufficient understanding by the employees of security risks arising from (not only) internet browsing, this technique is particularly popular with the attackers, having positive results for them and a very negative impact for the targeted company.
