Cybercrime has skyrocketed since 2020. Due to this, it is becoming increasingly important to become aware of the dangers that lie in our technology. After all, our tech is only as smart as us. To protect your business, we are going to go over 3 cybersecurity myths that can make your business vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
1. Our Business Is Too Small to Get Hacked
To cybercriminals, the size of your company does not matter. While events like the Colonial Pipeline prove they have the resources to pull off these massive hacks, often time they opt for smaller easier targets. Cybercriminals are looking for information, and it turns out that every company, no matter how big or small, has information.
2. I’m Too Smart to Click on That
Are you good at your job? Hackers are good at theirs too. They know how to trick someone, so it is not a matter of how smart you are, rather, how aware you are. Phishing training is important to stay alert and protect yourself against threats. All employees should participate in this training, even if you think you know it. It is an industry that is always changing, there will always be a new tactic that we need to learn about.
3. I Don’t Need to Worry About Social Media Habits
With current events going on in the world right now, our work life and personal life have blended. Because of this, employees are being less careful about the information shared on social media. Cybercriminals will look at this data as a clue to crack your password. Always be aware of any information shared on social media.
These myths have caused countless companies to become compromised. Make sure that you do not fall into the same tricks that have been used for years. The easiest way to avoid being hacked is to stay alert. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
