Hey there, security champions!

This month, Cywreck dives into the fascinating world of cybersecurity psychology.

Have you ever wondered why you click on that “urgent” email notification, even though a tiny voice whispers “red flag”? It’s because cybercriminals are master manipulators, exploiting our cognitive biases to steal data and wreak havoc. But fear not, brave defenders! We’re here to equip you with the knowledge to fight back:
