Mary in accounts has just received an email. Something in the back of her mind tells her it’s not quite right. But she’s in a rush. Lots to do. So, she clicks the link.
And… that’s it. Without realizing it, Mary just let hackers into the business. Oh. Wow. That was easy.
And it really can be as easy as that. As IT security experts, we know that one click on a bad link is all it can take to let hackers into your system.
The dark side of the internet is a very real threat to your business. Criminals around the world keep coming up with new ways of stealing money and data. Businesses with inadequate IT systems are very vulnerable targets. The bad guys are getting more and more sophisticated in the methods they use to sneak in. Their purpose is often to steal data or hold companies like yours to ransom.
It most often starts with a dodgy link.
Staff email accounts are the main entry point attackers target as they try to get into your IT systems. Having faith in your team is not enough.
Sophisticated criminals often do research to pretend to be people they’re not. They can persuade even your most tech-savvy staff to click links that can leave your whole business exposed to real danger.
It’s not only computers that are vulnerable. Mobiles are also in danger of being attacked, regardless of how safe their operating systems claim to be.
