Employee Cyber Security Training Is Vital To Reduce Cyber Attacks

In association with GoCyber

Cyber crime is having a truly major impact on the global economy and over 40% of business has reported cyber attacks or data breach in the past year. And the global economy lost over $1 Trillion from cyber crime, often because employee mistakes in 2020, making cyber security training for all employees now vital for all organisations.

As cyber crime becomes more lucrative, cyber attacks are more likely to occur. It’s important to understand the short-term and long-term effects cyber attacks could have on your business

Cyber attacks and malicious have become the new criminal norm and all organisations are under threat and often they are unaware of the initial criminal integration into their systems.

Most cyber crimes are carried out in order to generate profit for the cyber criminals, some cyber crimes are carried out against computers or devices directly to damage or disable them, while others use computers or networks to spread malware, illegal information, images or other materials. 

These attacks cover all industries, commerce and care organisations.

Cyber crime costs billions of pounds, causes untold damage, and threatens commercial and national security.
Cyber criminals seek to exploit human or security vulnerabilities in order to steal passwords, data or money directly. 

The most common cyber threats include:

•    Phishing - bogus emails that look valid ask employees for security information, commercial and personal details. The victim will either download an attachment that contains malware, or they’ll click a link and hand over sensitive information, such as their login credentials or financial information.  

•    Hacking - including organisations, social media and email passwords.

•    Malicious Software – including ransomware through which criminals hijack files and hold them to ransom.

•    Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) - attacks against websites, which is often accompanied by extortion. 

•    Ransomware Malicious Software (RMS) - that takes control of a business' computer system and blocks the user's access. The system remains locked until payments have been made to the cyber criminal.

Cyber Attack Prevention

Most cyber attacks could be prevented by taking these basic security steps: 

•    Regular cyber security training for all employees. 

•    Choose strong passwords and don’t reuse them for multiple logins.

•    Install security software such as anti-virus and two-factor authentication. 

•    Keep all cyber training, security software and operating systems updated.  

Cybercriminal activity may be carried out by individuals or small groups or, by highly organised global criminal groups. To further reduce the chances of detection and prosecution, cyber criminals often choose attack organisations with weak cyber training expertise.

Cyber attacks can lead to you losing customer confidence, as concerns about the security of information and access to services increase. Businesses have an obligation to report security breaches to customers, and within minutes you can lose the reputation you've spent years building. Local media may report the event, even if it concerns small businesses, and competitors may talk about the problem.

Online cyber awareness training for employees can mitigate the risk of cyber attacks on your business without disrupting the workday with Meetings, Seminars, or PowerPoints.
