In 2016, we reached a tipping point—a moment where the global and local implications of cybersecurity became undeniable. Despite the seriousness of the topic, the term "cybersecurity" still exasperates many people. They feel terrorized and overwhelmed. The majority of business people have very little understanding of cybersecurity, how to manage it, and what's really at risk.
When it comes to not opening emails that are clearly spam, most business leaders think, “Come on, of course my staff wouldn’t dream of opening those.” Hang on. You may not be aware of a new kind of phishing email – This new breed looks as if it’s been sent from someone you know over a system you use often! It doesn’t matter who you are or how proficient you are when it comes to your business’s data security, hackers can and will still target you. Instead, focus on the fact that these phishing attempts and data breaches are happening every day, in small ways and large. Your business could easily be put at risk by an employee who clicked without thinking. Human error is, in fact, one of the biggest cybersecurity risks that a business faces.
