Additional Information

Regardless of written policies and procedures, people WILL open emails that look like they are from vendors or customers (only to unleash malware). People WILL share passwords to get a job done on time. People WILL send payment to criminals who use fake letterhead/spoofed (phishing) emails. It’s human nature… and it opens the organization to all sorts of trouble!
