Protect Your Business From the InSide-Out
What Puts You At Risk
- Your Customer Data. When you store customer data and have limited resources to protect it, your organization may be at a higher risk of suffering a cyberattack. All data is valuable to cybercriminals.
- Humans Cause 92% of Data Breaches. Did you know that 66% of cybercriminals rank email phishing as their attack vector of choice? Unsuspecting employees may see a login confirmation or file download and not think twice about clicking it. Many employees are unaware of the risks.
- Dark Web Data Lingers. Reputable businesses like LinkedIn and Dropbox have suffered data breaches. If you use these services, your compromised credentials will remain exposed without proactive security and swift remediation. Third-party breaches can pose high risks to your network.
- Password Reuse is an Epidemic. It’s true. LogMeIn reports that 59% of individuals admitted to mostly or always using the same password, despite 91% knowing it’s a security risk. If a breached password is recycled, the accounts are more susceptible to being hacked. Although it’s easier to reuse one password, it’s risky.
My Spam Filter Is Enough, Right?
Spam filters only go so far. Alarmingly, 48% of hackers spend 1 to 5 hours a week keeping up with the latest security news, trends, and technologies. So, although technology is a tool for keeping up with the changing threat landscape, it’s a double-edged sword.
The Ponemon Institute points out that organizations see, on average, a 64% improvement in phishing click rates after rolling out a security training program and a 37-fold ROI upon enrolling in a phishing program. These numbers help to clarify why it’s so critical to stop cyber-criminals in their tracks. More than ever, businesses need a healthy layer of human defense.
