It becomes clearer all the time that with the dramatic increase in cyber risks due to the transformation to remote work culture, providing employees with cybersecurity awareness training has become more important than ever.
On their website, the FBI says its goal is to change the behavior of criminals and nation-states that believe they can compromise U.S. networks, steal financial and intellectual property, and put critical infrastructure at risk without facing risk themselves.
In other words, the FBI’s cybersecurity strategy is to impose risk and consequences on cyber adversaries.
This, as much as anything, should clue all organizations big and small to the importance of effective and efficient cybersecurity.
The world faces over 100,000 malicious websites and 10,000 malicious files daily with phishing attacks account for more than 80% of reported security incidents.
Google has registered over 2 million phishing sites as of January 2021 – this is up from 1.7 million in January 2020, which equates to a 27% increase in 12 months.
Those stats are alarming, yet expected to get even worse. The world will store 200 zettabytes of data by 2025. This is data that will be stored on private, public, and utility IT infrastructures and cloud data centers, personal computing devices such as PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones and on IoT (Internet-of-Things) devices.
Parlay this information with the number of internet-connected devices expected to increase from 31 billion in 2020 to 35 billion in 2021 and 75 billion in 2025.
The potential for disaster is quite clear.
Organizations need to act now or risk data loss and security breaches that have the potential to put them out of business not to mention being fined for violating new regulatory standards regarding cybersecurity precautions.
Experts say, in general, organizations need to invest more in cybersecurity measures. Those investments should start with gathering all the information and education necessary for organizations to make informed cybersecurity decisions.
