The Best Ways To Deal With Cybercrime In 2019

It’s not hackers or sophisticated attacks that worry our engineers. We asked them two questions to get to the bottom on why cybercrime is terrorising business, and their answers have a disconcerting consistency.

1. What annoys/frustrates you the most about cyber crime?

 

“Most cyber crimes are preventable.”

~ Simon – Technical Engineer

How successful they are, and how simple they are to stop.”
~ Gordon -Technical Engineer

 

“It’s completely avoidable!”

“People are too trusting and often hand over secure information far too easily!”


“The average person is oblivious to the threats they are open to in the cyber world. For example, a person thinks, “I am on my PC in my own home, so I am safe””.
~ Steve – Technical Engineer

 

2. So, what’s your top tip to for dealing with cyber crime?

Training! Most of the recent breaches are targeted attacks called spear phishing. Using public information published on sites such as LinkedIn can tell attackers exactly who they need to target within an organisation. [The] information is combined with a multitude of methods to gain access to accounts of specific users or simply impersonate them using a technique called Spoofing. If proper safeguards are put in place, attacks at stopped at this stage.”
~ Gordon – Technical Engineer
