CYBERSECURITY NEWS & ANALYSIS: THE THREAT OF THE WEEK & HOW TO STOP IT
Security Awareness Training is Essential – Just Ask Twitter.
Insider threats aren’t just malicious actors, like corporate spies or disgruntled hackers. The majority of insider threats are created by human error: mistakes or carelessness by staff that isn’t up-to-date on security awareness training, like phishing resistance – a lesson that was painfully brought home to Twitter recently.
Although security awareness training might look like a good place to cut corners in the IT budget, it’s really the most important place for companies to increase spending. 90% of incidents that end in a data breach start with a phishing attack, and phishing is the most common way that ransomware is delivered. Plus, companies don’t just face phishing danger from email anymore – SMS, text, and chat messages are also rife with phishing.
Security awareness training lowers the chance of an incident like a data breach by 70%, and a stunning 62% of businesses do not do enough cybersecurity awareness and phishing resistance training. Don’t make that mistake – an investment in security awareness training now will definitely cost less than the recovery from a data breach later.
