With employees around the world working from home and remote locations, the threat of cybersecurity attacks has never been higher. In 2020, Covid-19 spread at an alarming rate and, parallel with that, so did security breaches. Top cybersecurity experts report nearly 4,000 cybersecurity attacks a day since the pandemic began, an increase of more than 400% over prior years.
A successful attack can take a business offline for days, resulting in compromised data and lost revenue. Ongoing phishing scams, ransomware that compromises a user’s ability to access files without paying a hacker, data breaches exposing confidential user information, and highly sophisticated social engineering attacks targeted at individual users all have made the online landscape increasingly dangerous for unsuspecting and unprepared users.
Prepare your team. Cybersecurity awareness is the best way to protect users against any form of an attack. Conducting training to educate your employees on how to protect their computer and personal information, and secure company data, is the best defense against cybercriminals looking for easy targets. With an alert team that is educated and prepared, the threat of a personal attack being successful is almost completely eliminated.
Like most businesses today, your team’s technology prowess probably ranges from little experience to expert users, and there’s a good chance you don’t have a cybersecurity expert on staff, making internal training complicated or inefficient. Instead, invest in your preparedness by hiring industry-leading experts to educate and arm your employees as the company’s best defense.
