Cyber Security Weaknesses
We’ll cover the others, but do you know where the greatest threat comes from when referring to Cyber Security? Well the Captain always says “computers work perfectly, until you lot press keys on the keyboard”! So you may have guessed it, the greatest threat to your own Cyber Security are people, usually ones working on your own computers, and with your consent too!
But what happens if they receive a spam email that looks genuine, that has a dodgy link in it that takes them to something that looks like the Office 365 login page, then they enter their real email address and password? BAM! Someone is in and monitoring that mailbox. They could be there for months, biding their time, gathering information. They could then send an invoice for that new client you’re working with, but not with your banking details on it, but their own. What do you do? More importantly what do you do to stop this from happening?
In addition to people, it will be a computer without the latest security updates and/or protection and out of date hardware which may either be missing the latest firmware or is too old to support current protection.
There are also more ways to protect your computers than just anti-virus software, although this is important! Talk to us to find out more. You can book an appointment on the green Calendly button at the bottom right hand corner of the screen or contact us here.
