Security Awareness

94% of all breaches were targeted on people

Since March 2020, in the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, 80% of global malicious email traffic contained Covid-related fraudulent emails.

The number of these dangerous emails increased dramatically due to the circumstances and were extremely successful in luring employees of organisations into performing threat actors instructions, e.g. downloading malware, credential abuse and wire money (Proofpoint, 2020).

It is now more essential than ever to educate employees and everyone that has access to certain business assets about the current threats and enabling them to work safely and compliant from home.

According to the 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 94% of all breaches were targeted on people. We noticed that 99% of observed attacks required human error or activation to be successful. Cybercriminals are going after people because they are easier targets compared to technical vulnerabilities and more likely to make mistakes. No matter how strong the technical controls your organisation has, people will always be the last line of defence, so they should be trained and ready to avoid and report today’s threats.

Build a more robust technological defense against the obviously costly breaches.

Reducing the risk of data breaches is the main goal of effective Security Awareness programs. The security strategy is focused on secure behaviour and to transform your working environment into a secure culture. Although the precise number of breaches you prevent with Security Awareness tooling and training is not easily quantifiable, the incidence and prevalence of breaches before and after a successful awareness campaign can be.

Security AwarenessThe outcome would provide a good metric to measure the ROI of these Security Awareness campaigns. This may not provide an ideal picture, but considering the cost of breaches is in the multi-billions while Security Awareness training is inexpensive, it is an effective way to reduce costs eventually.

Investing in a Security Awareness training program helps you build a more robust technological defense against the obviously costly breaches. Because technological defenses require input from people, setting your employees on a path to being more security-conscious is the only way to go.

They learn the ability to recognize situations and give understanding to security risks and will set to help create behavioural changes in the long run.
