Getting Fired Cost My Employer Millions
"Here I was having a relaxing weekend with my family when out of nowhere, I got an email from HR with the subject line: Termination. My heart instantly dropped. It said that my company was cutting 10% of the workforce due to economic conditions, and unfortunately, I was no longer needed. I can't even express the shock and pain I was in."

How To Shop Safely During The Holidays
‘Tis the season to bring joy and jolly! Whether you’re shopping for gifts online or donating to your favorite charity, scammers are betting on your generous holiday spirit to take advantage of you. In fact, nearly 75% of Americans experienced at least one holiday scam last year. And they just don’t happen on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Because retailers are starting holiday sales as early as October and ending as late as the last week of December, scammers have more opportunities to muddle your holiday cheer.
Check out our 8 holiday scams with tips on how to keep your information out of the hands of people who are most definitely on the naughty list.
Lessons Learned Interviews
Every week, we interview a community member from our LinkedIn Security Awareness Managers group for their hard-learned lessons from working in the industry.
Phishing from An Attacker POV
"This is where people actually get scared. It's not like "I fell for a phish and everything will be fine. You fell for a phish, now you need to understand what can happen potentially, and it's very scary and very fast."
In a recent conversation with the Security Awareness community, we spoke with Uriel Kosayev, an experienced security researcher and author of the Antivirus Bypass Techniques. He walks us through the elements of a phishing attempt from an attacker's point of view and provides guidance on how to train employees to be wary of phishing attempts.
We invite you to connect with Security Awareness Managers in this private LinkedIn community hosted by Wizer. Join our weekly virtual huddle groups or hop on a LIVE interview with a community member to discover their hard-learned lessons of creating and running security awareness programs.
