Working from home is not going anywhere. In fact, research shows that post-pandemic 42% of employees who worked strictly from a company-based location will not return to the office. Do you know how this will impact your business? Learn more about the tools needed to protect your client data and improve employee productivity.
Check out the latest happenings in the world of IT from our Locknet® experts. In this issue, we highlight some topics your organization should be aware of to minimize risks. Specifically, mitigating insider threats to your security and the risks of hanging on to legacy data.
Phishing and ransomware go hand in hand. Ransomware almost always arrives at your company’s doorstep through a phishing email attack. New data on phishing attacks from the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APG) for the first quarter of 2022 shows an emphasis on impersonation and credential theft.
The APG’s latest quarterly report shows explosive growth in phishing attacks.
No one wants to deal with a ransomware attack in their organization. If it’s successful, the attack will not only be a major drain on company resources but will also create complications that could reverberate for ages. Even worse, it could put an organization out of business. According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, 60% of small and midsized companies will go out of business within six months of a ransomware attack.
The best offense is a good defense when it comes to phishing. The key is in making phishing attacks ineffective through employee education. Phishing simulations through security education & awareness training are effective at reducing an organization’s risk by making employees better at spotting bogus, unusual, and malicious-looking emails. Once employees are trained at spotting them, they are taking an active role in stopping cyber criminals from entering your organization.
