Some amount of predictability in your people is a good thing.
It means you can rely on them to turn up to work. To do their job properly. Even when they’re likely to bring you coffee.
But sometimes, you really, really don’t want them to be predictable. Such as clicking links in emails.
Because cyber criminals expect your team to act in a certain way, to unknowingly help them break into your systems.
Would you believe that 45% of employees click on suspicious emails “just in case”?
They’d rather take the risk of clicking a bad link than miss an important task. And it’s this kind of social engineering that gets cyber criminals what they want…
… your business’s data.
90% of incidents that end in a breach start with phishing emails. This is an email from a criminal pretending to be from someone you know, such as your bank or a key supplier.
It’s important you educate your people on the red flags to look out for. Give them clear guidance how they can check a suspicious link before clicking it.
One of the services we offer is regular staff training on cyber security. It’s your first line of defense against attack.
