Posted on Friday, June 30, 2023

At Right-Hand, our mission is to make humans more defensible against cyber threats. In today’s dynamic and ever-evolving threat landscape, cyber attackers possess advanced capabilities to evade traditional technological security layers (like an email security platform or a firewall). This forces a company’s employees to serve as the last line of defense. However, with roughly 90% of cyber attacks occurring due to human error, it is evident that most employees are not prepared for these scenarios. Right-Hand is uniquely positioned to help organizations address this massive issue and reduce human-influenced cyber risk.

The daily fulfillment of this mission would not be possible without the cornerstone of Right-Hand’s business - its people. We firmly believe if we take care of our employees, they will take care of our customers, and the rest will work itself out.
