Join us for our eighth annual State of the Phish webinar for an overview of the latest threat landscape, as well as insights into user knowledge trends and security controls that allow you to effectively mitigate risk.

This year’s webinar will present analysis of data from a variety of sources, including third-party surveys of over 4,100 employees, 100M simulating phishing attacks and 15M reported emails.

In this 60-minute session, our panelists will discuss:
• The 2021 threat landscape— people continue to be the primary target
• User vulnerabilities from multiple angles, including poor cyber hygiene and lack of knowledge and communication
• How organizations are delivering security education and ways to measure program success
• Security controls that help defend against human-activated threats
