In The Guide:

  • Discussion on how your staff are the weakest point in even the most advanced cyber securtity deterrents and networks.
  • Advice on education of your staff, what to be aware of and what to look out for.

Excerpt From The Guide:

If you do not have a cyber security strategy that consistently updates your business network, your process and educates your users then you are at risk. It’s a simple as that.

Far too often we see businesses who have invested in cyber security and then done nothing. The result? New types of viruses are released and new hacking techniques are developed. Existing solutions aren’t updated, software isn’t patched and a disaster is just waiting to happen.

Assuming that you are prepared to make an investment (if you’re not, you may as well stop reading this document as and assume that you will be hacked) then where do you need to focus?

Your staff: Your biggest business threat to in 2017:

So, here’s the top three reasons why your staff pose such a threat:

  1. Staff Can’t Spot Dodgy Emails
    Spotting an email that could contain a threat to your business is actually pretty easy. But if no-one has ever told you what to look for, how can you be expected to spot one?Email is still the most popular way of spreading viruses and they prey on staff members who do stupid things. Stupid things like opening emails, following dodgy links or opening infected attachments. The potential for humans to make mistakes like this will always mean that email will continue to be a huge threat area in 2017 and beyond.
  2.  Unbelievably Weak Passwords
    Passwords can be so easy to hack. Software that is freely available on the Internet can crack a password within seconds. Unless a password is of the required length and complexity it is not good enough and the chances are that the passwords of your staff members are poor.If that is the case, then all the security solutions you’ve put in place could be bypassed. If a hacker can crack a username/password combination, then they can access everything which that user could -including your server and (potentially) all the data on it.
