Terrifying Tech Tips

In honor of Halloween and Cybersecurity Awareness Month, here are some spine-chilling stats to ensure you stay safe and enjoy treats – and not tricks – this year.

All Data is Valuable to Cyber Criminals

Storing and accessing customer data mixed with limited resources to dedicate to cybersecurity means your organization may be at a higher risk of suffering a cyber-attack. 

92% of Data Breaches are due to Human Error

Employees are generally unaware of IT security risks. 66% of cybercriminals rank email phishing as their attack vector of choice. Unsuspecting employees may be fooled by an illegitimate email without thinking twice.

Dark Web Data Can’t Be Erased

Your employees’ credentials could be exposed on the dark web. Company accounts can be involved in data breaches too, such as the LinkedIn or Dropbox breaches. These breached credentials can’t be erased and without proactive security and swift remediation, can pose high risks to your network.

Password Reuse is an Epidemic

Yes, we’ve all heard it: “It’s easier to use one password’. 59% of individuals admitted to mostly or always using the same password, despite 91% knowing it’s a security risk. If a breached password is reused, the subsequent accounts are also at risk of being hacked.

Don’t fall prey to hocus pocus!
