Phishing Awareness Training
Phishing attacks can bring businesses crashing to the ground – they are easy to fall for and deadly to businesses. Not being Phishing Aware as a business will be costly, sooner or later – it’s just a matter of time.
What is Phishing Awareness Training?
Phishing awareness training is essential to ensure your business stays cyber safe. By making sure your employees can tell the difference between a normal email and a phishing email, you are doing everything you can to avoid a successful breach. You can have IT security in place, but if an employee opens up a link in a phishing email, it will lead to a criminal attack on your business.
The Damaging Impact of Malware
Depending on the type of malware, it works its way into a business’ system to access and hold to ransom company data. This could be user information, like login and password details, or critical data that your business will be unable to operate without. These breaches can lead to significant company downtime, loss of business and reputation, fines from the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office), as well as ransoms issued by the criminals.
There has been a significant increase in phishing attacks as staff revert to working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The way we communicate and work remotely has created a perfect storm for the phishing attack criminals.
It is, therefore, incredibly important to ensure that all of your staff are well trained to both recognise and avoid phishing attacks – for the safety of your business.
