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.
Train Your Humans
Your software is secure, your hardware is secure... what about your humans? We offer an extensive line of security presentations that go beyond the "Don't Click" methodology. We focus our training on the mindset of a cybercriminal and show exactly how an attack is created whether through phish, phone call, text, or weaponized USB.
Test Your Humans
We have built an Amazon Web Services infrastructure and use custom domains to send phish emails to your humans. After the test, you are sent the details of which humans opened, clicked or submitted their passwords to our phish emails. This is useful to understand who needs to be talked to.
Hack Your Infrastructure
One of the services we like to offer is a penetration test on your network. There are a number of different tests that can be performed. We can perform an attack from outside your network, inside your network, or even with simple credentials. One of our network security engineers can discuss options with you and your team.
"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."
Network Security Manager

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."

"I've been in the industry for over 30 years and I'm seeing a dangerous culture shift to a checkbox mentality. We need to stop checking boxes on our security checklists and provide our employees, friends and family with the tools to protect themselves when using the Internet."
If you would like a presentation for your organization or a conference, please contact us and we will get back to you to discuss content and scheduling.
As well as on-site presentations, we offer remote online training due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
Phish testing and infrastructure penetration testing would need to be scheduled with your IT department. We can take care of all the details.
