It’s a common misconception that the biggest cybercrime threats facing businesses and individuals are young hoody wearing hackers, sitting in their bedrooms creating dangerous software in the early hours. Or, more sophisticated figures, James Bond-esque characters sitting in a room full of computers, deep inside a secret facility protected by armed guards.
The truth is, they aren’t. Your biggest threat, sadly, is more likely to be a trusted member of staff who isn’t trying to hack into your systems, but just doesn’t understand anything about cyber crime.
Try as they might, most of the time hackers can only break into your computer network if someone lets them. And 75% of the time, this happens completely accidentally. One wrong click on a link or attachment, and a hacker is inside your system.
If you and your staff don’t know how to recognise common scams like phishing emails, it’s only a matter of time before one of you gets caught out.
We help our clients ensure their technology is protected and their important data and systems are backed up and able to recover quickly following a disaster. Staff training and awareness is part of this.
