SRC Technologies Debuts Security Awareness Training Service, Helps Wisconsin Business Leaders Prevent Phishing Scams Press Release from PRNEWSWIRE has been published today, Maciej Heyman, .
GREEN BAY, Wis., Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Do your employees know the difference between legitimate emails and phishing scams? That’s the question SRC Technologies (www.srctechnologies.com), a regional IT infrastructure, data security consultant and managed service provider, is asking midmarket businesses throughout the area – and with good reason. According to security research, 98 percent of cyberattacks today are the result of deceptive social engineering tactics, and email phishing ploys are cybercriminals’ preferred method of infiltration.1 Additionally, two-thirds of successfully installed malware originated as malicious email attachments.2 To combat these sobering statistics, SRC announced today its new End-User Security Training Service, offering web-based training combined with simulated phishing attacks to help employees recognize and avoid serious cyber threats.
“The most important thing a company can do to prevent a phishing attack is to turn its employees into human firewalls,” says Paul Jablonski, a security consultant with SRC Technologies. “People need to learn how to recognize a phishing email and what they can do to protect themselves, both as individuals and as employees, so they won’t become a cybercriminal’s next victim. The best advice we can give our customers is this: Don’t ever think, ‘It won’t happen to me or my organization,’ because it absolutely can, and at some point, it probably will.”
Experts say phishing attacks play at least some role in most modern data breaches. In 2017, one of the most notable data breaches in the state took place at the Medical College of Wisconsin. In this incident, the protected health information of an estimated 9,500 patients was exposed when cybercriminals gained access to the email accounts of just a handful of employees during a week-long targeted spear phishing attack.3 Unfortunately, according to Wisconsin’s Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, this scenario is all too common: A bicycle manufacturer, a health insurance provider, a general insurance and reinsurance company, a community planning and engineering firm, a water treatment chemical manufacturer, a records management software firm, a plastics manufacturer, a dental services group, and two school districts were all targeted in the last year alone.4 And each of these attacks had one thing in common: employees who didn’t know how to spot a phish-y email and employers who didn’t know how to stop them.
Six Ways to Thwart Phishing Attacks The SRC Technologies End-User Security Training Service is based on the industry-standard KnowBe4 platform that helps train employees to spot suspicious emails and tests their knowledge with periodic simulated phishing attacks. To help Wisconsin business leaders learn to thwart phishing attacks, SRC’s Jablonski offers these six tips:
Says Jablonski: “It’s up to each of us as individuals and business leaders to learn how to recognize these attacks and avoid them.” But does security awareness training work? According to tests performed after using the KnowBe4 platform, the answer is a resounding “Yes!”
Studies based on a massive data set of six million users across 11,000 organizations demonstrated that security awareness training lowered the percentage of “phish-prone” employees – those apt to engage in “careless clicking” – from an industry average of 28 percent to 13 percent – less than half – within 90 days of beginning the program; after one year, that number decreased to just over 2 percent.1

Adweek’s announcement builds on the three Global Agency of the Year designations MediaCom has recently received from Campaign, the Festival of Media and M&M Global, marking the first time any single network has held all four titles simultaneously. The accolades are in recognition of a year in which the agency not only grew its business with existing clients like P&G, but also welcomed marketers including Groupe PSA, Walgreens Boots Alliance, Richemont, Uber, and MetLife to its global roster. Its astounding new business performance landed MediaCom at the top of R3 Worldwide’s new business rankings for the year.
“Every one of our 7,000 employees contributed to our success in 2017, and we’re not letting up any time soon,” said Stephen Allan, Worldwide Chairman and CEO of MediaCom. “On behalf of everyone across the network, I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to Adweek for this important accolade, along with the clients with whom we are so fortunate to partner every day.”

U-Haul® will soon offer a contemporary self-storage facility at 2925 S. 112th St. thanks to the acquisition of the former Boeing® airline customer support offices.
Once the 323,758-square-foot space is renovated, it will hold approximately 3,800 self-storage units with high-tech security features and indoor climate-control and heating options. U-Box portable moving and storage containers, U-Haul Remote 24/7® access, a U-Haul Re-Use center for gently used household goods and materials, the Take A Box, Leave A Box® program, and much more will also be available on the 12.89-acre lot.
“This location will help us bring truck sharing and self-storage to the community of Tukwila and nearby SeaTac, Burien, South Park, Allentown, Glendale and Riverton-Boulevard Park,” stated Kim Merow, U-Haul Company of South Seattle president. “We are excited to be in this area and serve our customers more effectively and sustainably.”

The recent acquisition of the Tukwila facility was driven by U-Haul Company’s Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul® supports infill developments to help local communities lower their carbon footprint. Our adaptive reuse of existing buildings reduces the amount of energy and resources required for new-building materials and helps cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
By repurposing the former Boeing buildings store, U-Haul prevented the use of 5,526 tons of metal manufacturing and transportation (the amount of steel used to make 5,571 passenger cars); avoided 18,420 tons of new concrete pours (enough to create 372 miles of concrete blocks); kept 24,173 tons of building and demolition debris out of landfills (avoiding 930 dump trucks traveling 19,524 miles); and stopped 29,578,361 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere (the carbon emissions of 2,269 large SUVs or pickup trucks for one year).
“We purchased these buildings because we wanted to make sure they were preserved,” Merow said. “They have an interesting look to them and we are excited to maintain them. We want to repurpose them, not only to protect the environment, but also to provide needed self-move and self-storage services to these communities.”
Merow expects to hire a staff of 20 or more Team Members when the facility is fully operational. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within the South Seattle community. U-Haul always encourages local contractors to bid on renovation work.
