Strengthen your cyber resilience with NG-IT
This could have been a phishing email.
How certain were you that the link you just clicked, the one that brought you to this page, was safe? You clearly put a lot of trust in your security solution – but is it as effective as it could be?
Cyberattacks are more prevalent than ever before, rising over 40% in the first half of 2022 compared to 2021. As more and more organisations transition to a cloud-based infrastructure, the attack surface is widening and cybercriminals are taking advantage of an increased number of critical failure points. It’s of paramount importance that businesses adopt a robust approach to preventing these attacks and stopping cybercriminals in their tracks.
Is it really worth it?
Gartner, Inc. predicts that by 2025 more than 95% of workloads will be deployed to the cloud which means cyberattacks on cloud services, infrastructure and applications are on the rise – the risks of which are becoming increasingly more severe. Cyberattacks can cause huge financial losses, impact a business’ reputation, and have significant legal implications, is it really a risk worth taking? Are you confident your business has done everything it can to protect itself against an attack of this nature?

Prevention First – Security Awareness is key
The methods and complexities of phishing have changed over time and are advancing with the use of ever more sophisticated techniques. Attackers often use employee impersonation, meaning that senior staff or executives, whose responsibilities involve significant financial transactions, are at a higher risk of being targeted and are therefore a priority for detection and prevention.
More advanced anti-phishing solutions use a combination of techniques to detect and prevent phishing attacks, many are now making use of artificial intelligence (AI) to identify malicious emails that traditional gateway-type solutions frequently miss, making it possible to stop advanced phishing attacks that would normally evade other email security systems.
Whilst cyberattacks are rarely the result of a single point of failure, it’s wise to ensure every person in your organisation is up to speed on the dangers of phishing attacks and how to prevent them. Having a simple yet robust first-line defence in place is one of the most effective ways to protect your business.
