You have heard us talk before about how employees are the first line of defence against cyber attacks. So why is it that a third of businesses do not provide cybersecurity training to their remote employees? A whopping 74% of those people have access to critical data. This puts businesses at risk of devastating cyber attacks.
Having employees know how to spot phishing emails, the importance of a password manager, updating software and how to use technology safely will greatly help keep your business secure and the best way to teach your entire team, whether they work in the office or at home, is by providing cyber security training.
Cybercriminals are getting smarter and using remote working to their advantage. There has been an increase in smartphone attacks because employees often use their personal smartphone devices to access work data. Cybercriminals have figured out that if they can hack into a smartphone, they will likely be able to steal personal and professional data. Regular cyber security training can provide your team with the knowledge they need to understand the risks and what to do in the event of a cyber attack.
We all know the consequences businesses can face if they are attacked so don't put your business at a higher risk by not training your entire staff, both remotely and in the office, and take the necessary steps to better protect your business.
