The Biggest Cyber Risk that Your Business Faces [Infographic]
What is the biggest risk to your company’s data? You’d probably say its hackers or malware. You’d be wrong. While hackers and malware can’t be ignored, you’d be surprised at how effective the latest antivirus software is.
As long as you regularly update your antivirus software, you’re reasonably well-protected. They’re not perfect, so you can’t rely on them solely. And that brings us back to the biggest risk that your business faces – human error.
No matter how good your software is, all it takes is to download and open one dodgy file. Bam, your system is infected.
Phishing attacks are another area to be concerned about. 94% of ransomware attacks are as a direct result of phishing attacks. You’ve probably opened a few yourself and didn’t even realize it. Not all phishers make obvious mistakes that will ring warning bells.
That’s why you start with software that filters out suspicious emails before your staff get to see them. That’s a great start, but it’s not enough on its own. You also need to consider security awareness training for your staff.
This training will teach your staff more about staying secure online and help keep them frosty. From there, it’s advisable to run regular refresher sessions, and also to run tests on staff from time to time.
