According to a study conducted by the University of Maryland, hackers attack on an average of 2,244 times per day. And as reported by Varonis, 56 percent of Americans say they don’t know what to do in the event of a data breach. In short: the threats are high and the current state of cyber awareness is nowhere near where it should be.
Nowadays, it seems as though there is risk in everything you do, whether you’re in the office or working from home. Unfortunately, that’s because there is. Hackers have found ways to threaten businesses over email, voicemail, private servers, messaging services and more. While it may seem impossible to keep up, you and your team must work to raise your awareness. This is not something the IT department can take on alone - it has to be a joint effort or one mistake could set the entire company back.
