Human Error – The real threat to cyber security

Our organisations are at risk of security breaches now more than ever before and doing nothing is no longer an option. We have all spent the last decade securing and improving our IT systems in an effort to protect our businesses and customers. For this reason, hackers have changed their approach, increasingly targeting staff & exploiting human error.  We now know that when it comes to cybersecurityit’s better to be safe than sorry.  

It’s no longer just avoiding “Free iPhone” advertisements on the side of dubious web pages. Nowadays, you also have to identify and avoid extremely persuasive spear phishing emails from “colleagues” containing viruses and malware disguised as a very convincing PDF file.  

With COVID-19 forcing many of us to work remotely, hackers have become even more cunning. They’re using ransomware that the public has never even seen before, and they’re harvesting public employee information from the internet to disguise the attack. It’s for this reason that cybersecurity and especially cyber awareness are so important! Especially when 90% of data breaches are due to human error. 

Failing to identify security risks, can result in you finding yourself as the next victim of a devastating cyber attack. And once a breach has occurred, it’s impossible to reverse. It can result in your organisation having their confidential data compromised, as well as lost revenue, public humiliation and hefty bills. 

Besides these, it can also have detrimental effects to your personal life. Stolen identity, drained savings accounts, damaged devices and employment terminations are just a few examples of some of the aftereffects of a successful hack. This can all be prevented by providing proper training and resources on detecting and minimising online risks.
