“People are prone to taking mental shortcuts. They may know that they shouldn’t give out certain information, but the fear of not being nice, the fear of appearing ignorant, the fear of a perceived authority figure – all these are triggers, which can be used by a social engineer to convince a person to override established security procedures.” Kevin Mitnick

It’s important to understand the many vulnerabilities that your organization can face in the course of doing business today, not to scare you, simply to inform you.

A Vastly Changing Landscape

More and more workers are telecommuting part time and almost everyone has to do some kind of work on the go, en route to conferences and business meetings, etc. Therefore, whether your business uses cloud applications primarily for its processes or not, a lot of your sensitive data will pass through the cloud every day anyway.

Any industry expert will tell you that the cloud offers many conveniences and luxuries. However, it’s not 100% secure. Businesses should always take extra precautions to secure their data when using business software as well as regular email, screen sharing, chat, text and social applications online.

Unfortunately, many employees who aren’t paid extremely well and aren’t super-appreciative of their jobs just don’t care about their boss’ cybersecurity. They might not download torrents on their work devices. However, making sure they have simple instructions to follow no matter what is often easier than asking them to care.

In addition, every employee shouldn’t have access to every file, computer program or work platform. Only a professional managed services provider can make sure to protect your data from both external and internal threats.
