Employees are Cyber Secure in Theory, But Not in Practice

February 4, 2019

Across the world, cybersecurity has moved from the shadows to center stage, due to increasing malware attacks and the soaring cost of resultant damages [predicted to rise to $6 trillion annually by 2021]. It’s no surprise therefore that Forbes predicts that cybersecurity is a top business priority in 2019 across organizations: “In 2019, cybersecurity concerns will be a major topic in the boardroom and executive offices of every significant enterprise.” Apart from technology that helps secure the organization from cybercrime, attention is being drawn to the crucial human element in keeping the organization safe. Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Report puts human error as the cause of one in five breaches. According to Wombat Security’s State of the Phish, 83% of businesses reported being a victim of a phishing attack in 2018. An employee can be an organization’s weakest link or its strongest defense against cybercrime.

What is phishing? How this cyber attack works and how to prevent it

Infographic | February 12, 2020

Phishing is a cyber attack that uses disguised email as a weapon. The goal is to trick the email recipient into believing that the message is something they want or need — a request from their bank, for instance, or a note from someone in their company — and to click a link or download an attachment. What really distinguishes phishing is the form the message takes: the attackers masquerade as a trusted entity of some kind, often a real or plausibly real person, or a company the victim might do business with. It's one of the oldest types of cyberattacks, dating back to the 1990s, and it's still one of the most widespread and pernicious, with phishing messages and techniques becoming increasingly sophisticated.
