A rhetorical question about the effectiveness of our security solutions

If our approach to cyber security is working, why in 2019, are we reading about hacking, social engineering and data breaches every day? Every day?

I know it’s easier to attack than it is to defend, but we all know in the industry that many of the successful attacks can be prevented. Unfortunately, “PEOPLE” are the weakest link in the chain of our security solutions. And unfortunately, telling PEOPLE not to open emails from people they don’t recognize doesn’t stop them from… you know,… opening emails from people they don’t recognize. And telling them to “check the URL” is the single worst piece of advice you can give to anyone.
