Nowadays everything is so much dependent on technology. The use of technology in business is helping in gaining more profits and on the other side, cyber threats and breaches are increasing rapidly. It has become imperative to aware the employees about cyber threat and breaches.
To prevent business from cyber breaches, making staff aware of cyber hacks and instilling knowledge of cyber attack is essential. The larger companies are targeted more than small-scale business.
What is the most common type of cybersecurity breaches?
The hackers use various ways to hack a network; some of the breaches remain uncommon. Here are the common types of violations that attackers use for cyber attacks.
- The employees or staff receive fraudulent emails and after clicking on those links they hackers get access to the network
- More than 33% of the breaches have occurred due to viruses, spyware, and malware.
- According to a report the attackers used emails or online ways and pretended to be an organization.
- In business, more breaches occur due to Ransomware attacks
How do you protect your company?
Prevention is the best way to get protected from cyber breaches. The hackers are using Phishing attacks in which they are scamming people to “send details” or “click here” or “click a link”. So to prevent breaches the employees should have enough knowledge of the cyber violations and should not open fraudulent emails and links.
Another way to get protection is to have cyber insurance. Cyber insurance pays for the damage and helps to protect the reputation. The amount received from cyber insurance is more enough to be paid for a security specialist that can fix the breach.
The hackers mostly target the employees to get access to the network. Every employee should be aware of cyber breaches and ways the hackers use. They should have enough knowledge of fraudulent emails and links. Training on cybersecurity should be provided to the employees. Information related to cyber breaches and attacks should be mentioned during meetings. One time training should not be enough as the attackers use various ways to attack, so the cybersecurity team should keep the employee’s update by providing time to time training.
