Let’s Go Phishing With KnowBe4 & Identify Your Weakest Links
Inhouse cybersecurity training might have once been a nice to have – that was then, this is now. Today most business operations are increasingly dependent on technology, and on their employees’ ability to use it safely. While the new age of remote and mobile working has huge advantages, it also has opened up huge gateways for cybercriminals to reap the benefits of poor organizational security postures which are aggravated by employees’ ignorance of the pitfalls.
Yet more than ever businesses need to be cybersecure if they are to comply with data protection regulations, keep their own sensitive data secure, ensure business continuity, and avoid the risk of breach-induced production downtime and the cost of repairing reputational damage and rebuilding customer confidence.
Email and poor passwords continue to be the main vectors of cybersecurity hacks. The increasing prevalence of phishing attempts and identity fraud further complicate the landscape, and all too often staff just aren’t aware of the dangers. And remember 82% of data breaches involve a human element be it exposure to ransomware, phishing, domain identity theft, email spoofing or weak passwords.
But who are your weakest links? You need to know to plug the gaps and to ensure that all your staff are on constant alert to the dangers. Employees who know how to identify, detect, and mitigate threats such as phishing, ransomware and spoofing will be able to prevent attacks on the company and its customers.
