Well, to say that the last 12 months were challenging is underselling the idea.
We have a tremendous rise of cyber threats, an escalation of critical infrastructure ransomware attacks, governments initiating cooperation never seen before with private actors to address cybersecurity on a large scale, the gap of cybersecurity skilled labor getting bigger, serious conversations about hybrid work and its risks in a post-COVID world, and social networks are taking even more heat on data privacy concerns.
And as usual, people are front and center in every one of these conversations. It’s been the same for every single year of Cybersecurity Awareness Month for 18 years now. And here at Right-Hand, we’re all about making people more cyber aware, building strong cyberculture.
Our motto for this year is that Cybersecurity is Everybody’s Business, so we want all levels of all sorts of organizations to engage with the topic. So, for this year’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we are bringing two significant programs that, as usual, will address:
- The needs of security leaders and officers, that look into solutions to make their organizations more resilient by mitigating human risk, optimizing budgets, automating processes, driving informed cybersecurity decisions and supporting their cyber skill sourcing.
- Workforce empowerment, delivering the tools and the knowledge to make employees the last line of defense, after technological barriers are bypassed by sophisticated cybercriminals. We supply resources easy to use and knowlege easy to retain and apply in real-life situations.

Empower Your Workforce with 12 Months Phishing Report for Free With PhishArm
In a recent survey with industry professionals, about 60% of organizations have informal ways of reporting suspicious phishing email messages. These organizations use channels such as Slack, phone, email, and even casual conversations, making it troubling for security teams to organize, investigate and mitigate potential threats.
It’s too little for a type of attack responsible for a significant part of data breaches. The increasing sophistication of cyberattacks that use email, especially spear phishing, whaling, and others, bypass technological barriers, such as firewalls.
Considering that, we will offer PhishArm, our Phishing reporting tool, for free, for 12 months. All you have to do is go to the promotional page until October 31, 2021, and fill the form. Our team will contact you and discuss the implementation steps. It’s easy, and you will feel a significant change in how your organization addresses a severe security threat.
