Do you currently provide your employees security education?
Awareness and personnel training are the first step of addressing company’s security concerns. And may also be a control that is required for compliance.
Today, 98% of cyber-attacks rely on social engineering. According to Allianz Risk Barometer 2020 list, data breach or giving access to personal or confidential information is the #1 cause of all cybersecurity incidents which makes 77% of all incidents.
At second place is ransomware (62%), followed by the third — human error (42%). The new trend of spoofing, when cyber-criminal pretends to be a trusted and known source such as senior management or colleague, is becoming a common way to extract login information and steal company money.
Regular staff information security training and anti-phishing campaigns prove an important tool to decrease the risk of data breach and human error. At 5NINES we continue educating and training our employees on company cybersecurity with our partner, Infosec. Their online education tools and dashboards are easy to implement and provide easy online education and training for our employees on cyber best practices.
