The threat of cyber attacks and security breaches is greater than ever before.
From ransomware to phishing, the variety and frequency of attacks is ever increasing. Businesses today, of all shapes and sizes, must be prepared for the threat of data breaches.
A successful phishing scam can be detrimental to your business. These scams attempt to acquire your personal information, or sensitive information about the company and it’s employees by sending fraudulent emails, often with malicious website links contained within. This is referred to as ‘Social Engineering’.
Social engineering relies on human error. Phishing attacks are successful because staff are not familiar with the dangers of social engineering. It is crucial for the network users to stay educated about these dangers to avoid any incident that could result in a large scale data breach for the company.
You can arrange for a training session with your managed services provider. During the training, network users will learn how to identify and understand phishing scams and also how to mitigate the threat of an attack in the future.
