This year’s theme is “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.” The theme encourages individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace, stressing personal accountability, and the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity.
In today’s era of digital information, cyber security is a common concern shared by businesses around the world. From malicious software damaging your hardware and leading to costly replacements to data and information theft, the cyberspace can be a scary place. This makes it important for every business to take the right security measures to protect their data, including employee information, client information, and critical business data.
As organizations and individuals worldwide become more reliant on technology, there are more opportunities to connect and collaborate—but also more risks. Organizations should have programs that include security awareness training, including phishing! For instance, how to detect phishing, scams, and social engineering attacks. Data shows, 43% of cyber-attacks on SMBs start with phishing and social engineering.
Security training should be regularly scheduled. It should provide training on specific topics that are relevant to real-world threats and common attacks. Security training most importantly should include phishing awareness training.
There are some interesting numbers from an organization called Purple Sack released earlier this year:
- 21% of ransomware incidents started with or involved social engineering actions such as phishing.
- 30% of phishing messages are still being opened by users and 12% of users are clicking on those malicious attachments and links.
