Cyber-attacks are happening every day, this is nothing new however with employees and businesses alike having to adapt to the new norm of working from home for the foreseeable future, attackers will be looking to take advantage of the situation to exploit vulnerabilities which unfortunately include employees.
Believe it or not, many organisations don’t have any sort of cyber security policy in place and when (not if) an attack occurs, there is the real threat that along with the cost you in time and money spent to rectify the breach, it also has the potential to damage your reputation which you have worked hard to build. It’s only a matter of time before your organisation will be targeted so what can you do to prevent this?
There are many ways a business could be compromised and it’s vital that all employees from frontline workers all the way up to the executive level are provided with training on what these are modify their behaviours and remain vigilant to these threats.
Businesses are very good at running fire drills, having regular OH&S training and other company related training but how often do we talk about or provide training on security and best practice to our employees?
Employees are already the weakest link in any businesses cyber defence and there are plenty of bad individuals out there ready to exploit these weaknesses thanks to a basic lack of knowledge or training to help workers remain vigilant especially in this brave new world of the ‘remote worker’.
