It's always hard to come to terms with the worst-case scenario, particularly when business operations are running smoothly. However, in the age of cybersecurity, organizations cannot let their guards down, even when it comes to things they trust the most.
Managers might put their faith in the technology, and in their network in particular, to provide access and operate effectively. The problem is, hardware and storage solutions can fail or be breached, and without a backup plan, it could cost you. Leaders might also place trust in the vendor, but not all providers offer the best solution to fit your business, leaving you open to serious vulnerabilities.
With the advanced methods hackers are using, believing in email senders and employees can also be big mistakes. Phishing emails are becoming more sophisticated by pretending to be a trusted source to get into your system. These actors often use familiar sounding names and will ask for personal information or to download a link containing malware. Staff members can fall for these attacks, as well as make errors through technology protocol issues and improper internet usage.
