In a typical week, Ryerson receives 1 million password guessing attempts.

Last year, there were over 200 reported incidents of lost or stolen laptops and mobile devices at Ryerson.

In a Ryerson test, 20% of people were tricked into clicking a malicious link in an email.

Even though Ryerson blocks up to 500 malicious malware email attachments every day, some still slip through.
