More and more businesses pay attention to cybersecurity awareness training

Because of phishing incidents, almost 90% of businesses have started educating their employees on cybersecurity

According to the analysis of Webroot company, the fear of phishing campaigns has pushed businesses to start employee cybersecurity awareness training. Reportedly, companies have started training their employees throughout their employment, so the knowledge is continuously updated.

Since there were a lot of attacks targeting businesses and companies they take cybersecurity seriously. While phishing goes third in 2017, in 2018, it is at the top as the most dangerous threat. Overall, various malware has been jumping to the top too. Ransomware raised from the fifth place to the third this year, and DDoS with mobile attacks fell down a few positions. However, all these responses vary based on the geographical location.

A layered cybersecurity strategy is the most effective

Charlie Tomeo, the vice president of Webroot, said:

As our study shows, the rise of new attacks is leaving SMB’s feeling unprepared. One of the most effective strategies to keep your company safe is with a layered cybersecurity stargety that can secure users and their devices at every stage of an attack, across every possible attack vector. And for many businesses, relying on a managed service provider (MSP) when time and expertise aren’t readily available is a crucial step to strengthen their security efforts.

Taking precautionary measures is especially important for people in large businesses because the bigger the company, the more significant the damage. Employing IT security experts and amping the risk management can significantly lessen the risk of malware attacks or at least affect the major vulnerabilities. A few tools and methods, authentication and other strategies can help people and businesses.

Importance of patching vulnerabilities

When managing the network and its security, patching vulnerabilities become a crucial process. This process should include regular scans on the network, testing firewall and automated tools for testing and finding vulnerabilities.

Identifying flaws on the network requires analyzing the system in-depth and doing tests as well as researching the results. Then the process of getting patches on the weakness in time comes along. The affected software and even hardware should be recovered to the perfect state right away because malware attacks is a relatively automated process.

Patch management using specific tools could also help in this process. Patching should also include more work before the initial attack that includes testing patches and updating software, hardware as frequently as possible.

We cannot forget about occasional OS issues and daily errors that need to be fixed ASAP when you are dealing with large networks in organizations or personal computers.
