Most people have some form of a bad habit. You may initially think of habits such as nailing biting, drinking too much caffeine or staying up for “just one more episode”.
While these are bad personal habits, there are work ones too. People may not even realise that the habits that they are in could be classified as bad.
Potentially, the worst and most harmful is ploughing through emails without ever stopping to ask “could this email be fake?”.
It only takes one person clicking on one bad link in one email and hackers get into your system. Yes, it is shocking – but it really can be that simple.
A simple example is an email comes in from what appears to be a regular vendor. You are expecting an invoice from OneExample.com so you open the invoice. But the email you received has come from OnExample.com and the “invoice” is a link from a cyber-criminal.
Software can give you a level of protection. Ultimately your employees are the best line of defence against ransomware and other types of cyber-attacks. But only if you train them properly.
As the boundary between home and work continues to blur, it is getting easier to neglect cyber security and slip into bad habits.
Organising cyber security training is crucial; and it can be fun! Give the right training to the right staff at the right time to ensure your business is secure.
