Cyber security is a Mindset Not Just a solution
Social Engineering and Cyber Threats are becoming more complex and very clever, just spotting when your being played is harder. If you’re not aware of hidden threats and cannot recognise the markers – How can you stop them?
It can be easy to invite something unwanted and damaging into your business without even knowing you are doing it, Ransomware, Malware and Viruses can be let in through emails, dodgy websites and links and in some cases, someone pretends to be someone you know asking for your personal information.
Just one phishing email can cause huge problems for your business, from just a single employee opening the door. Through phishing a hacker can be on your network. Once inside recent reports conclude that a hacker and his software sit in the average network for 197 days filtering off data and information.
Many companies at this point will be muttering “Our Data isn’t worth anything to anyone”. This may be true but it’s worth something to you, which is why we have a huge escalation in smaller businesses being hacked and caught with Ransomware. If it’s not valuable on the darkweb, how much will you pay to keep working?
This can cause huge consequences for your business from loss of data, Ransoms, theft, huge amounts of downtime and also fines. Also if breached, you could face up to £20 million in fines or even 4% of annual turnover for failing to comply to GDPR.
