How do I prevent ransomware?
How do I prevent phishing?
How do I protect my company from being hacked?
These are the million-dollar questions regarding your cybersecurity, literally. Recovery from an attack can be devastating and beyond costly.
And the truth is, the answers are not always concrete. Of course, there are security solutions that can certainly help with prevention but even a multilayered approach is not fail proof. However, a critical place for protection to start are the areas in which you are most susceptible to cyber criminals such as:
- Your staff
- Any other person on your network
This may sound like a joke, but it is a fact!
Recently, Twitter, a company where we assume nearly all employees are tech savvy, experienced a massive hack that all started with an employee falling for a phishing email. If it can happen to a giant technology company, it can happen to anyone.
So that leads us to the REAL question we need to be asking…
“What can I do to make my employees less vulnerable to hackers?”
The good news is that we DO have an answer to that question, and it is fairly simple: Security Awareness Training.
Training everyone in your organization to have an eye for the “phishy,” followed by testing those skills might be the lifeline your company needs. Studies show that 60% of small to medium businesses that suffer a data breach or ransomware attack close within 6 months. There has never been a more crucial time than now to protect yourself.
