Phishing, social engineering, ransomware and malware are the most common cyber threats afflicting corporate working scenario. It is therefore, important to educate the employees so that they may not fall easy prey to these malpractitioners and may end up in losing important data and records.  

The corporate working atmosphere also calls for comprehensive training programmes in the area of teamwork, leadership management, anti-harassment norms and building a corporate identity. At end of the day, it’s all about the organization and not an individual person; individuals are mere channels working towards a broader goal of company’s development and fulfillment of desired goals and objectives laid by a company.
