You may wonder, “I have antivirus installed so I’m good, right?” Nope. Here’s why.
“Free WiFi! Let’s connect to it! Awesome!” But is it? Let’s take a closer look at why there is more to consider.
IBM’s Threat Intelligence Index verifies that humans are still the weakest links within organizations and play the major role in making cyberattacks successful. How do we help turn this around by transforming them from our weakest links into our greatest assets for protecting our organizations against cyberattacks?
Hackers hate and avoid organizations with a culture that values and actively promotes Cyber Resilience Awareness. Their employees don’t make mistakes easily like organizations without one.
As humans, our default instinct is to ignore things that threaten us until they impact us directly even as we are very weak and vulnerable to them. That’s why hardly anyone has an estate plan or business continuity strategy. The real problem is this: the less we care, the more vulnerable we are.
It’s not a big secret. Every business in the US needs to be much more proactive about cybersecurity. Smaller businesses especially are easy targets because they typically have fewer resources than large enterprises and are more likely to buy into many cybersecurity myths, such as thinking they’re not at risk, have nothing of value and so have nothing to protect. Research shows otherwise.
