Learn How to Focus on Cybersecurity and Stay Safe Online
Data breaches occur worldwide, with cybersecurity attacks with an average cost of $4.35 million globally, in 2022
According to the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, “Every organization in the United States is at risk from cyber threats that can disrupt essential services and potentially result in impacts to public safety.”
At least 60% of businesses increase their product prices to account for the costs as a result of the attacks.
Since 2022, October has been Cybersecurity Awareness Month to share information with the citizens so that they can stay safe online.
At the same time, it is a precious moment for companies to make the most intelligent decisions and consider Cybersecurity more crucial than ever. Actions required include protecting networks, devices, and data from unlawful access or illicit use. It’s also essential to provide confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.
Threats are more sophisticated than ever in our daily lives, as for companies of every size. So this is a reminder of the need to focus on Cybersecurity and Stay Safe Online.
Where do these attacks come from? In a report, The Annual Cost of a Data Breach revealed the numbers between the most common causes in 2022:
- Compromised credentials (19%)
- Phishing attacks (16%)
- Cloud misconfiguration (15%)
- Vulnerability in third-party software (13%)
This year’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month’s motto is See Yourself in Cyber. It’s a way of keeping in mind the importance of everyone’s involvement in Cybersecurity. Even though it’s a complex subject, everything starts with individual actions and prioritizing them in organizations.
These are some basic cyber hygiene practices
- Think before you click on any website
- Update your software, as hackers are more likely to look for breaches in previous versions of programs
- Have good solid passwords or a password keeper
- Enable multi-factor authentication on all your sensitive accounts
What should companies do to focus on cybersecurity?
Operational decisions are vital to ensure the company’s safety and avoid or prevent attacks. A focus on Cybersecurity will bring confidentiality, integrity and availability of data.
The attention on these matters should come from the top leadership and go down to the newest employee. While individual and team vigilance will be of great help, in the end, working together is part of the solution.
Some organizational actions to stay safe online:
- Use only approved tools and organization-approved software
- Secure your Meetings with precautions
- Secure your information by sharing only the needed data
- Secure yourself by taking precautions and ensuring safe networks
