Most CIOs are on top of their game when it comes to securing networks, encrypting sensitive data and keeping private customer information safe – chances are, you’re one of those. But there’s a glaring security flaw you may have overlooked: your end-users.

“Sure, you’ve invested in cutting-edge security software and you’ve got great IT talent – but you’ve also got end-users. Marketing, sales, administrative professionals; these are the folks who are woefully unprepared to deal with phishing scams, social engineering schemes and it’s the cause of a lot of breaches. It’s a major part of the problem,” says Anthony Harris, a security expert and subject matter expert (SME) with online education provider Cybrary.
