What is Phishing?
Phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails that appear to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.
Phishing emails are designed to convince you that you are performing a normal task or procedure.
Those affected by phishing range from large corporations to small companies; from tech and finance companies to hospitals, schools, and local governments.
What are Phishing Campaigns?
Phishing campaigns can be active as often as is preferred. During an active campaign, an email is sent to an end user in an attempt to induce the user to take action on the email.
The phishing campaigns evolve over time, and can range in subject matter.
Phishing campaigns can be set up to occur as often as is preferred. They can occur at random, and can be set up to send to all users, to a specific group, or to an individual.
What are Training Campaigns?
Training campaigns consist of training modules, video modules, and even games. They range in length from 3 minutes – 45 minutes.
Training is customizable. Campaigns can happen as often as you prefer.
Each campaign can be set up with training reminders, such as: notifying the users of their enrollment, number of days left until the end date, training completion notifications, and the number of days that training is past due.
What is VTG Armor?
VTG Armor is Security Awareness Training that changes the way users approach emails through a combination of phishing email campaigns, training campaigns, and reporting on their progress.
This method allows users to adopt a mindset of vigilance and healthy suspicion. In addition to your organization’s policies and procedures, each user will know how to respond when they receive an unsolicited email to verify its legitimacy.
Every phishing test sent is creating an opportunity for your employees to succeed in keeping you and your organization secure.
Once a month, a report to the account’s administrator is provided.
Examples of progress reports include:
- Number of training sessions completed in a given time frame.
- Number of phishing emails clicked on by a specific user.
Other reports are available and can be generated at any time.

While moving data and applications to the cloud can provide many benefits, it does not mean that the security of your data is automatically guaranteed.Cybersecurity is still crucial even when your data is in the cloud. In fact, cloud environments can be particularly vulnerable to cyber threats due to the increased complexity of their infrastructure and the potential form is configurations. Cloud providers are responsible for securing the infrastructure, but customers are responsible for securing their own data and applications. This includes implementing access controls, monitoring for threats, and ensuring that data is encrypted both at rest and in transit. In addition, cloud providers typically have shared responsibility models, where they only provide certain levels of security, leaving the customer responsible for other areas. Ultimately, regardless of where your data is located, it is important to have a strong cybersecurity strategy in place to protect it from cyber threats.
Break fix IT is a reactive approach to IT management where issues are addressed only when they arise. The main drawback of break fix IT is that it is a reactive approach, meaning that problems are addressed only after they occur. This can result in downtime, lost productivity, and potential data loss. In contrast, proactive IT is a more comprehensive approach that involves monitoring and maintaining IT systems to prevent issues before they occur. By proactively monitoring systems, potential problems can be identified and addressed before they cause significant disruptions. Proactive IT also involves regular updates and maintenance, which can improve system performance and security. In the long run, proactive IT can save businesses time and money by preventing costly downtime and other issues.Therefore, while break fix IT may seem like a cost-effective option in the short term, proactive IT is ultimately a more effective and efficient approach to managing IT systems.
Small businesses are justas vulnerable to cybersecurity threats as larger organizations. In fact, they may be even more vulnerable as they often lack the resources and expertise to implement strong cybersecurity measures. Cybercriminals know that small businesses are attractive targets as they may have weaker security defenses and valuable data that can be sold on the dark web. Small businesses may also be targeted as a means of accessing larger organizations that they work with.Additionally, many small businesses may not take cybersecurity as seriously as they should, thinking that they are not likely to be targeted. However, the reality is that cyber threats can impact any business, regardless of its size.Therefore, it is crucial for small businesses to prioritize cybersecurity and implement best practices such as regular employee training, strong passwords, and multi-factor authentication. By doing so, small businesses can better protect their assets, their customers, and their reputation.
A Security Operations Center (SOC) monitored endpoint protection solution likeSentinelOne offers several advantages over traditional antivirus software. Here are some reasons why:
BehavioralAnalysis: Traditional antivirus software relies on signature-based detection, which means it can only detect known threats. However, SentinelOne uses behavioral analysis to detect and block new and unknown threats. This means it can detect and block zero-day attacks, file less malware, and other advanced threats that traditional antivirus software might miss.
Real-timeDetection and Response: SentinelOne's real-time detection and response capabilities allow it to identify and respond to threats quickly. This can help prevent damage to systems and data, and minimize the impact of a security incident.
Automation and Orchestration: SentinelOne's automation and orchestration capabilities allow it to respond to threats automatically. This means that threats can be blocked and remediated without the need for human intervention, freeing up security personnel to focus on more strategic tasks.
Integration with SOC: SentinelOne can be integrated with a SOC, which allows security analysts to monitor endpoints in real-time and respond to threats quickly. This can help organizations detect and respond to threats more effectively, and reduce the time it takes to contain and remediate a security incident.
EndpointVisibility: SentinelOne provides organizations with comprehensive endpoint visibility, which means they can see what's happening on all endpoints, even those that are off-network or remote. This helps organizations identify and respond to threats more effectively, and ensure that all endpoints are protected.
In summary, SentinelOne offers several advantages over traditional antivirus software, including behavioral analysis, real-time detection and response, automation and orchestration, integration with SOC, and endpoint visibility. By leveraging these capabilities, organizations can improve their security posture, detect and respond to threats more effectively, and reduce the risk of a security incident.

Without proper cybersecurity measures in place, you could be vulnerable to these attacks. This could lead to financial losses, reputational damage, or even legal liabilities. Additionally, even if you are not directly targeted, you could still be affected by security breaches through third-party vendors or partners that you work with. Therefore, regardless of the size or nature of your business, it is important to prioritize cybersecurity to protect your digital assets and ensure the integrity of your operations.
