Humans make mistakes and sometimes these mistakes can cause significant damage to your business.
Did you know that human error is the No. 1 cybersecurity threat to your business? In fact, 95% of cybersecurity breaches are successful due to human error. That's why you must ensure your Microsoft 365 data is securely backed up and protected.

You must be thinking why backup your Microsoft 365 data when Microsoft data centers are protected by state-of-the-art security infrastructure. The unfortunate truth is even such a robust IT infrastructure can’t protect your Microsoft 365 data from human error.

Human error is an unpatchable weakness in any data protection plan and threat actors are exploiting this by leveraging increasingly sophisticated social engineering tactics and tools with great success.

Join Brian Doty, Channel Development Manager, Spanning and Matthew McDermott, Spanning Director of Product Management and Microsoft Office 365 MVP, as they discuss the business and technical trends driving the growth of social engineering attacks and how with the right tools and strategies, you can keep these threats where they belong — away.

The webinar covers:

  • How COVID-19 and the rapid increase in remote work accelerated the growth of social engineering attacks.
  • Why Microsoft 365 is particularly vulnerable to social engineering threats.
  • Why you, not Microsoft, are responsible for managing social engineering attacks.
  • Actionable strategies and tactics to protect your Microsoft 365 from social engineering attacks.
