In today’s digital landscape, cyberattacks are rampant. According to recent surveys, businesses targeted by cybercriminals increased from 38% to 43% over the past year, with many of those surveyed reporting five attacks or more. Meanwhile, ransomware attacks rose by 158% in North America alone between 2019 and 2020.
This begs the question – is your company taking the appropriate steps to protect itself? Although many companies have good intentions and install cybersecurity software initially, many tend to ignore them, leaving them vulnerable to attacks over time. Most threats originate from outside of your organization. These threats can take many forms, including malware, phishing, pharming, ransomware, spam, spyware, etc. The list is constantly evolving and changing.
There is also a risk to organizations from inside your organization. These threats can be just as destructive as external threats. These can be confidential information leakage, social engineering, malicious cyberattacks and malicious downloads, among other threats. Depending on your business, there may be a regulatory body that enforces a certain level of security posture on your organization.
