What we do

Stickley on Security was founded in 2007 with a plan to provide organizations with meaningful education and awareness solutions that employees and customers would actually embrace. As our founder Jim Stickley points out, it is simple to offer a training course but far more difficult to actually educate the participants. Our goal is to ensure that your customers and employees not only learn about cybersecurity risks, but that they can apply what they learn into their everyday lives and jobs.

Latest Cybersecurity News

FREE Windows OS 11 Download Includes FREE Vidar Info-Stealer Malware

Cybersecurity experts warn “free software” often has many strings attached, and none of them good. An infection from Vidar info-stealing malware is an example of just how wrong a free software download can go. ThreatLabz found new domains created by a bad actor that spoofed the real, official Microsoft Windows 11 portal. Instead of getting the legitimate Windows 11 for free, what you end up with is a Vidar info-stealing malware infection.

BEC: Replacing Ransomware As Preferred Cybercrime

Business email compromise (BEC) is yet another effort by scammers to illegally use the identity of a company in order to gain something. This could be financial gain, but could also be to gather information. Often those who are doing BEC crime issue fake invoices or contracts to customers to try to get them to part with cash, believing erroneously that the requests are legitimate. And the targets of this type of crime are not the entry-level employees, but those who have something those scammers really want.

Hackers are sending “innocent” spam emails as a calling card to deploy Avaddon ransomware on data systems. Hoping to catch users off guard, spam emails infiltrate email accounts with a subject line asking the user if they approve of their “new photo” or the photo of the spam sender. What could possibly go wrong when the only email content is an innocuous winking smiley face?
