The reason for our webinar
The COVID-19 outbreak has completely transformed working practices for most of us, and remote working looks like it’s here to stay for the foreseeable future. Whilst this brings with it a number of benefits, including improved employee experience and better work/life balances, it does create the ideal opportunity for cyber criminals to take advantage of such unpredictable circumstances.
In March 2020 when the UK went into it’s first national lockdown, most businesses were completely unprepared for mass remote working. As such, they were using systems and networks in new ways that they weren’t originally designed for. This created the perfect opportunity for cyber criminals to attack, especially alongside the fact that employees were no longer in an office environment and were likely feeling anxious about added financial, social and political pressures.
Contrary to popular belief, cyber-attacks don’t necessarily have to be advanced or sophisticated in order to succeed and infiltrate your data. Financial data and personal credentials are often stolen through simple email phishing attacks. Once stolen, information is sold on the Dark Web, without you or your employees ever knowing about it. This is made particularly easy for hackers as most people use the same password across multiple sites and accounts; the importance of password security is something that will be drawn upon during the webinar.
The government’s Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2020 found that 46% of businesses reported a cyber security attack within the last year, with 32% of businesses experiencing issues at least once a week! This is why, as a Business Owner or C-Suite Executive, it’s so important to have a solid understanding of what threats to look out for and how to minimise risk to your business as much as possible.
