We have outlined below a list of onboarding and termination services designed to provide your business with the security, compliance, and support required for your cloud or traditional work environment
Cybersecurity and Compliance
Digital Edge has seen an exponential increase in social engineering-related cybercrimes. These are attacks leveraging email, text messaging, social media, and other forms of everyday electronic communication platforms to propel employees into providing hackers with more important information that can help break corporate systems or steal data from them. More specifically, phishing attacks and ransomware attacks have seen huge increases, by some estimates ransomware is up more than 1000% and phishing campaigns are up over 200%. This trend is not reversing as estimates suggest ransomware attacks now happen as frequently as every 11 seconds. Employee security awareness training can help organizations ensure that their workforce can properly navigate these changes to the security landscape by internalizing the organization's best practices and up to date knowledge about today's security threats.
