Train Remote Workers to Defend Against Cyber Actors Exploiting Covid-19
Human Error-Tool for Hackers
The hackers around the world have been sharpening their tools to exploit your weak links. They’re taking advantage of the loopholes left behind in your security landscape and the lack of security awareness among your employees. You should know that the weakest link in your IT security is ‘human’. 92% of the breaches case are caused due to human error. That includes not only your employees, but your contractors, managers, and even your board members. Anyone with system ‘access’ is prone to a human error-based data breach. Let’s look at how the Human Error enables a hacker to gain access to your digital assets:
1. Your employee receives a seemingly official and legitimate email with a link to view or download an important document, which redirects him to a convincing but fake landing page and requests him to input log-in credentials.
2. Your employee uses overly simple and easily guessable passwords. Moreover, the same password is used to access multiple services.
3. An email that seems to be from a colleague or a trusted source request for payment.
4. Your overworked or stressed team member receives tax-time or online shopping delivery notification emails and mistakenly acts upon it.
Financial Impact of a Human Error: The average financial impact of a data breach caused by inappropriate IT resource use by employees is $116K for SMBs and $1,195K for enterprises. Irrespective of the size of your company, the financial burden includes: penalties and fines, increased insurance premiums, the need to buy new software, having to engage in extra PR and training, and much more.
