Every Employee Is Now Part of Your Security Team
Don't Forget To Train The Humans
Cybercriminals are attacking us from every direction targeting our hardware, software and employees. We can no longer rely on a few people in the IT department to handle every attack vector for the entire organization. We can no longer keep buying security appliances and software expecting it to be a silver bullet. We need to help our IT department by giving every employee who touches a computer the tools to understand when they are being manipulated, whether it be by email, text, phone call or by weaponized USB.
"The most unique aspect of Frank's presentation is that he researches the latest hacking techniques reported in the news, breaks them down and offers clear tips and guidelines of how to reduce our vulnerability to hackers."

"Your previous sessions provided to our staff earlier in the year proved useful as subsequent phishing tests yielded no ‘clicks’ from those who attended this training."

"As we discussed prior to your presentation, one of our goals for staff training has been to equip the staff with the necessary tools to perform their duties while working with the children. As such, safety – of the children, and our staff is of utmost importance!
Staff - myself included – found the presentation eye opening!"
"His presentations were eye-opening and we fully intend on continuing to turn to Frank to keep us up to date on protecting ourselves on-line."
Deputy Chief Inspector
"In addition, I reached out to Frank after the fact with further security questions and he responded back with answers in a timely fashion. A great resource – thanks!”
Manager of Community Development
"If you are trying to get your users to stop clicking silly things an you don't want them bored out of their minds, I highly recommend Frank Fazio. I mean, you could get Frank just to entertain your next dinner party and it would be worth it. Seriously fantastic speaker and very reasonable rates even for the dollar-clutchers."
Director of Professional Services
In The Media
"It's easier for me to attack a human than it is to try to attack a system," he said. "If I can trick you into going to a fake website, putting your username or password in, now I've got your username or password and I can use it.
"I don't need to break anything. It's all about manipulation, social engineering."
