Cybersecurity training for all staﬀ with testing and real-life scenarios. We suggested updating their risk assessment analysis. We devised new cybersecurity policies and procedures for dealing with, and recognizing false internet and phone exchanges. We also suggested a PEN test done by a reputable security firm.
