According to Microsoft, 91% of of cyber attacks start with email. Mitigations such as multi-factor authentication prevent 99% of cyber attacks but the 1% of successful attacks can cause devastating effects. A recent simulated spear phishing campaign was sent to all HU staff and faculty. The purpose of these simulations is to always raise awareness.
