It’s one of those jingles that can stick in your head all day: “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart”. The overarching theme of October’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the message is simple but clear. We all play a role in keeping ourselves and others safe from costly (and infuriating) cyberattacks. Led by CISA and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and now in its 18th year, this national awareness campaign sends a great reminder that a proactive approach is needed to decrease cybersecurity risks and stay safe online. It’s time to think about your own company and take the steps necessary to protect your business, clients, reputation, and revenue from phishing.
Traditional Proactive Approaches Are Not Enough
It’s no secret that a proactive approach to cybersecurity is best. And yet nearly 80% of senior IT and IT security leaders believe their organizations lack sufficient protection against cyberattacks.1 That level of vulnerability is not only frightening but potentially costly – especially considering that cybercrime is projected to cost the world $10.5 trillion a year by 2025.1
Have you taken a proactive approach to cybersecurity recently? Was it enough and would your cyber solutions measure up to today’s phishing attacks? Many think they’re covered, or that ‘it won’t happen to them’. Sadly, in light of the fact that there is a ransomware victim every 10 seconds, your company could be a cybercrime ticking timebomb.1
If you think you’re doing enough to #BeCyberSmart, consider the following:
- Malware evolves over time. Hackers are constantly exploiting loopholes in new technology and bypassing perimeter defense lines.
- Secure Email Gateways (SEGs) use threat examples from active, ongoing attacks but today’s sophisticated phish launch and shut down quickly – long before SEGs can register them as issues.
- Firewalls, DNS filtering, and endpoint security can’t protect you from email phishing schemes.
- Phishing simulations might improve employee awareness but studies show that even after a year of training, 96 of your 2,000 employees will still succumb to human error, making that one click of the mouse that sets a phishing attack into motion.
- Most email phishing solutions don’t work on mobile devices, including the email security that comes with Google Workspace.
Phishing attacks account for more than 80% of reported cybersecurity occurrences.1 But, with the right measures in place, you can avoid becoming another statistic.
