Phishing attacks are on the rise, and they are getting sneakier by the day. These scams are like chameleons, constantly changing their colours to blend in with your emails, messages, and websites, all with the aim of tricking you into giving away your personal information or access to your systems and data.
91%of successful data breaches start with a spear phishing attack
Ransomware has increased by 229% since 2017 with nearly 100k attacks daily
10-15% of phishing attacks are making it through your filters
About 30% of data breaches are caused by repeat offenders
There are a number of steps to help reduce the risk of phishing attacks, below are just some of the ways we can help.
Phishing Awareness Training
Unfortunately, employees are the weak link in an organisations network security. They are frequently exposed to sophisticated phishing and ransomware attacks. In fact, 91% of successful data breaches started with a spear phishing attack. Employees need to be trained and remain on their toes with security top of mind.
Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing campaigns help reduce the human risk factor. We offer automated training campaigns with scheduled reminder emails, fully automated simulated phishing attacks and monthly reporting.
Ransomware Encryption Protection
Many phishing attacks, have the sole purpose of penetrating your network and systems and putting small piece of software on your computer which will sit silently learning and preparing to encrypt your files as part of a ransomware attack.
Countering ransomware means stopping the file encryption process.
Ransomware Encryption Protection (REP) arrests malicious encryption as it unfolds. REP can distinguish between normal operating system encryption and processes and malicious attempts.
Keeping your Data Safe - Data Backups
Regular back up of your data is key when defending against Ransomware Attacks. Did you know that if you use Microsoft 365, Microsoft does not take any responsibility for your data if it is victim to a Ransomware Attack or maliciously deleted. This responsibility is yours. We can protect your data with regular backups.
Privileged Access Management and Application Control
Restricting and controlling use of Administrator Privileges and which programs can be run by individuals strongly reduces the risk that malware or ransomware can have. Privileged Access Management and Application Control makes this process easy with the ability to allow or block requests for escalations with one click, or set auto-approval rules for individual users or programs.
