According to a recent industry study, 83% of global organisations experienced phishing attacks in 2018, and attacks are expected to continue to surge in 2019 targeting Australian consumers and businesses.
The need for cyber security and phishing attack training and education within businesses continues to become more and more important. Companies may need to invest in employee education resources to help protect against growing attacks.
Monitoring social networks, penetrating email systems to create convincing targeted phishing messages and taking advantage of remote workers through SIM swapping and SIM jacking allowing access to a mobile phone without the owner’s knowledge are all possible ways hackers may begin to gain access to information and passwords.
Protecting your business begins with educating your employees on cyber security.
