We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – cybersecurity is made up of all the different people who use it, and sometimes even those who abuse it. This week we want to again highlight the role that insider threats can play on your organization’s cybersecurity. While the ransomware trend overall seems to be holding steady for 2022, the trend for BEC seems to be trending upwards int he 2023 forecast. While this isn’t to say that someone WILL click that fishy link, or use their organization’s email in a form-fill of a suspicious website. It isn’t always malicious actions of an insider that threats your company- it’s the inadvertent click of a SMS phishing text or suspicious email link that can lead a threat right into the heart of your business.
How can you keep those sort of things from happening? A good cybersecurity plan already in place and up-to-date software is a good start! The best way is to continuously train your people. Cybersecurity is about protecting data, at the core, but also about keeping the people who use technology safe from those who would do harm with it. What harm they can do can be mitigated with the right RBAC and IAM in place- but could just as easily be stopped by an alert employee who knows what they should and shouldn’t be clicking on.
