It is near impossible to stay safe in the digital age, as cyber-threats are constantly evolving and leaving us vulnerable. It’s important for organizations of all sizes to invest in cybersecurity solutions so they can safeguard their networks with a solution that adaptively responds and protects from threats at any scale.
An entire industry of network and computer security has evolved to mitigate these threats. This is because hackers are always looking for new ways to hack into private systems, as well as public networks that store sensitive information such the government’s classified files or even your personal pictures.
The human element of the security system is so often overlooked. Our thoughts and feelings can be swayed by a variety of factors – advertising, peer pressure, etcetera. It’s important to remember that we are all susceptible; even those who you might think would never fall victim!
Criminals, and others with malicious intent, are exploiting this weakness via social engineering. This is why it’s important to always be wary of unsolicited emails or phone calls from someone you don’t know!
Think of it this way: if you were a thief, how would you break into someone’s house? You might start with the front door. It may not be as obvious or easy to approach but its reliability can’t really be disputed and there are many ways for thieves to enter through it; just about any conceivable method will work in some capacity. Well that is exactly what social engineering attacks do too–they take advantage of unsuspecting victims by manipulating them directly on their device through various means including phishing schemes and cleverly crafted emails containing malicious attachments designed specifically so they evoke trust among recipients.
For many years employees have fallen victim to social engineering attacks, with phishing being one of the most common social threat vectors which primarily use emailing tricks.
Employees are the backbone of any organization. They carry out tasks, maintain facilities and equipment, provide products and services to customers – all while providing key support for information security. Employee awareness training is one of those things that can help improve your company’s defenses against cyberattacks. Employee safety should be a top priority in every workplace because it ensures its success as well as their own livelihoods.
