Employees should be considered a weak point in your security system. This is because most criminals will go for your employees’ devices to crack into your network security. Your employees can be targeted in several ways – phishing, spear phishing, whaling and so on.
As per recent studies, criminals have shifted their focus to compromising employee devices. Unless your workers are trained in cyber security, they can easily fall prey to the scores of criminal tactics.
First, concentrate on phishing. Your employees need to be able to identify phishing attempts. Second, prepare your team for safe surfing. It’s the next biggest source of malware infection. And third, concentrate on device security.
When training your employees on cyber security training, pay special attention to password training. Criminals are actively hunting for accounts with weak passwords. Then, you need to train your workers on safe surfing habits as well.
