“You could spend a fortune purchasing technology and services, and
your network infrastructure could still remain vulnerable to old-fashioned
— Kevin Mitnick
Did you know that around 25% of small companies and 59% of larger ones are actively seeking out updated cybersecurity training for their staff?
If your company is one of these, then your search is over…
Kevin Mitnick is an American computer security consultant, author, and former hacker. Since 2000, he has been undertaking security consulting, and teaching social engineering to many of the world’s companies and government agencies.
KnowBe4 is the world’s largest integrated security awareness training and simulated phishing platform.
You need to educate your staff before it is too late
The weakest link in most business IT infrastructures is staff who are not educated in recognising the telltale signs of cybercriminal threats – whether this is through staff email phishing attacks, social engineering or the use of weak passwords.
If your company has managed to escape a breach in 2018, it may not be so lucky in 2019.
Did you know?
In February 2018 alone, 3186 data breach files were dumped in one large file on the dark web.
Over the course of the year, more than 3581 breaches were added to the BreachAware database. Of these:
– 283 were data breached from UK company websites (co.uk)
– 2832 data breaches each contained >1000 email addresses (79%)
– 1800 data breaches contained plaintext passwords (50%).
Plaintext means the password was stored in a readable format without any encryption. The other 50% had encryption of various levels of difficulty meaning that some could be reversed and cracked, while others couldn’t.
These standard security questions you should be asking your employees are a start, but are not enough…
- Those emails you believe are legitimate, often are not, so why click the link without thinking and double checking it?
- Why tell your colleague your password?
- Why write down information and leave it on your desk?
- Are you using your mobile device near your work PC?
