As Cyber Security Awareness Month comes to an end this week, don’t let the momentum you’ve created dwindle or diminish. Take the foundation of awareness that you’ve been establishing with your business and keep the drive going. To help keep the movement moving in the correct direction, we have included four essential topics to help everyone get refreshed.
- Phishing – This is one of the easiest ways for scammers to access a network. One email can hit many users at once, and it only takes one person making a mistake to take down an entire business. Routine simulated phishing campaigns are a great way to ensure your clients are staying alert for phishing emails.
- Dark Web Dangers – This term is often thrown around but not often understood. Be sure that everyone in your organization knows how files are created over time and from various breaches with their personal information. These little bits of data add up to a large resource file that can be used as a methodical cyberattack on them.
- Social Media Security – That social media poll asking what your favorite food is? That’s collecting data on you and answers to your security questions. Spreading awareness regarding social media security and how cybercriminals use social media will help prevent oversharing that could lead to a breach.
- Ongoing Training – Your entire organization must participate in ongoing training programs. As the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve, new threats are emerging, and best practices are changing. Ongoing training will help keep employees in the know about current scams, keep security top of mind, and reassure the organization that strong cybersecurity practices must be maintained. Ongoing training is one of the most effective ways you can strengthen your cybersecurity defense.
