Cybersecurity is a big issue these days. One huge aspect of cybersecurity is that hackers are going after companies and trying to defraud them all the time. They do this through ransomware, stealing sensitive company data, social engineering, phishing attacks or a combination of these techniques. And they do this for one reason – it is profitable.
Here is a statistic that you are probably not aware of – 71% of data breaches occur in small and medium sized businesses . SMB data breaches typically don’t make headlines, but the results can be disastrous.
Obviously we want to prevent anything like this happening to your firm. So how can we stop this? The common thread in the vast majority of attacks point to the weakest link in your IT network ….. your employees. According to a 2014 IBM study, 95% of breaches are caused by human error .
