Cyber Security is no joke. Company losses from cyber attacks in 2021 are expected to reach a total of $ 6 trillion. Research shows, that the average financial damage from a cyberattack is $675k for each company subject to attack.
Why this is happening? Well, mostly because of the employees. A case study shows that 59% of malware cases originated from employee mistakes. The worst part is, employees tend to hide their mistakes. Globally 40% of employees didn’t report cybersecurity problems they faced.
Not only malware, but targeted attacks are also a serious problem for companies. And hackers know the weakest link is employees. They send important-looking e-mails to employees to reach their computers. Globally 28% of cyber attacks start with social engineering or fishing mails.
Passwords they use, places they logged in, e-mails they clicked are all potential risks. Luckily, these risks are easily avoidable by Cyber Security Awareness education. After all, employees need to know what a “fishing mail” looks like to avoid it right?
