Common Security Practices Increase Fear; Not Decrease
Not only has it been noted that 81% of companies have noticed an increase in the frequency of email-based attacks, but the cost of breaches has gone up as well. Cybercriminals are choosing attacks with a quicker payout, but they won’t stop there. Businesses of all sizes reside in fear of their valuable information being stolen, from ransomware to email phishing, every company must be prepared for all types of attacks.
As businesses are relying too heavily on basic security systems, such as Office 365, this allows cybercriminals too easy of an opportunity to hack important information. Cybercriminals are able to retrieve login credentials, thus compromising the account and targeting other individuals in the company. Ransomware and spear phishing mitigate the need for a middleman, allowing cybercriminals to get paid directly. Spear phishing is more personalized than other attacks, dismissing the use of malicious links and attachments, rather requesting supposedly legitimate requests to wire money.
