Ensure Your Organisation’s Staff Has Cyber Security Awareness For 2023

Cyber security attacks on companies have increased and become diverse and damaging, with many new types of r attacks emerging. The British government says the cost of cyber cime to the national economy is currenty estimated at £27bn and is likely to continue growing next year. 

The average cost of a malware or ransomware attack to a UK organisation is over £2.5m. And the cost of cyber crime to the world economy is estimated as over £10 Trillion. 

Now, 2023 is fast approaching and phishing and cyber attack campaigns continue to increase. These operations offer an easy route for cyber criminals to generate revenue, steal credentials and spread malware. As the pandemic is very slowly becoming a distant memory, the digital acceleration that came with it has continued in both our working and personal lives. 

We all now need to train all staff in cyber security awareness to significantly reduce the chances of an attack on our organisation succeeding.

Hybrid working remains commonplace in many organisations, and without an integrated and powerful online safety awareness programme with serious oomph in place, it is only a matter of time before your organisation will be hit with an inevitable cyber attack in some capacity. 

As we all know in this industry, it’s a matter of when, sadly, not if. 

Ransomware is on the increase. And it only takes one employee to be tricked into clicking onto a malicious link for it to impact the entire organisation very quickly. Not to mention possible data breaches, phishing attacks and straightforward scams. As businesses face unprecedented economic pressures, a cyber-attack is the last thing any serious organisation wants to be facing. 

So what does a robust, impactful internal online safety awareness programme look like? An annual e-learning course? Regular educational talks? Face to face training sessions? 

The options are endless but finding a method that fits into busy working lives, drives behaviour change and gets employees to operate as safely as possible online, as a habit, are important considerations. The latest iteration of GoCyber is focused on delivering an impact quickly.
