2018 has been a challenging and expensive year for professional services firms and large organizations who found themselves targets of data breaches, phishing scams, and ransomware attacks. As we move into 2019, we are seeing stories in the news every day about new security risks and attacks. Firms and businesses are facing very real, 6-figure threats from the use of outdated operational processes and communications systems like email.
