User Risk Report 2018

Risky end-user behaviours are impacting organisations around the world. Are infosecurity teams overestimating end users understanding of fundamental cybersecurity best practices?

With implications that can be immediate (like a ransomware infection) or a threat that lies in wait (like an incident of credential compromise), it's clear there is a pressing need to better define and manage end-user risk.
