“When the executives have an ‘ah-ha’ moment during the training session, that makes me more passionate; I love helping companies raise awareness.” – Ross Saunders 

If you think your company is too small, or that you have the latest firewall, and you’re safe from hackers (Or from being breached ), think again.
