Cyber Training … Why Is It Important?

Cyber security is one of the most important things in today’s technology world. 

From data breaches to just taking someone’s banking information, hackers are now being more creative with their tactics. But, there are plenty of ways to always stay alert so you can keep on top of any security threat.

Cyber Security Training

You hear this term a lot and it’s something that has been harped about … But why is it so important?

The workplace has evolved throughout the years and technology has been a big party of that transformation. Adding in the risk of having someone come into your personal information and even company data means workplaces need to have more security.  Firewalls and anti-virus protections are simply not enough for hackers.  Hackers have been more creative with their tactics and scams that now everyone needs to be more alert!

Having the ability to know what is a threat and what is just your daily routine is important.
|Cyber security training can help you recognize different types of threats using simulators and common hacker moves.

If you can’t recognize emails, links, or even phone calls, you can be potentially putting a company at risk for a data breach.
You always want to be alert with any email that is coming to you!

 

Having the ability to be one step above a hacker is challenging. One way is by having simulations will help you see the different kinds of attacks and how you can prevent your company from having a data breach and/or information deleted/stolen.

In 2020, there was an estimated amount of 1001 cases.
That’s 1001 cases that could of probably been avoided if companies has cyber security training.

Data breaches are getting worse and users are not aware of the risks!

Employees are often the primary targets for hackers looking to get into critical business systems.
Rather than trying to breach a secure network or system through external means, it’s much easier for hackers to pretend to be authorized members of a company while they inflict their damage from the inside and do so undetected.

Sadly, many employees don’t even realize how important cybersecurity training really is for the organization they work for.
Even worse, according to a survey of over 4,500 employees, 22% of employees don’t feel like they should be obligated to keep their employer’s information safe.

Employees handle the information on an everyday basis, so a hacker will come to them first before anyone else. Internal attacks are easier.

Don’t wait to get cyber security training. You could not only protect the company, but you can even protect your own information!

Keep Your Information Safe From Hackers!

We always try to make it harder for hackers to get into our information. Hackers don’t want to work too hard to get information.
There’s a few different things that can help keep your data safe and protected, but one easy way to do it is  …

Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication is an electronic authentication method that a device user is granted access to a website or application only AFTER successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) to an authentication mechanism: knowledge (something only the user knows), possession (something only the user has), and inherence (something only the user is).

Having multi-factor authentication makes stealing your information harder for the average criminal. If your information is hard to get into, it becomes less enticing to the average hacker and makes them move on to the next person.

Multi-factor authentication adds a second or third (or more) factor to the login process for company resources (apps, services, servers, etc.).  You can use multi-factor for banking accounts, emails, any sort of company program that has valuable information, and even email!

Having a hacker try to get into your information should be a challenge for them! Not having your information backed up by different security could lead to deleted information or even a data breach that could potentially lead to danger within your company or even for yourself! I know … It’s hard to think that you can’t just get into an app or even a site without having to use a code to get into it, but once you do it for a while it feels like second nature! You’ll be thanking yourself for it and happy you went with it.
Hackers are only getting more advanced with their strategies to get into your personal and company information.  Finding different strategies and approaches will help you continue to keep your data safe.  With multi-factor authentication, you are able to use security codes, questions, tokens, and other ways to make sure you are the only person able to get into the system and having access to the information.

There are a few different products out there that can help you get started, but talking to your IT company will help you see what is best for you and your company!

Always remember … The more a hacker needs to try, the less enticing your information is!!!

If you need more information or you are looking to start multi-factor authentication for your company, contact PCS today!
