Improving Cybersecurity Awareness of Employees is Essential

Cybersecurity is defined as freedom from, or resilience against, potential harm or other unwanted coercive change caused by hostile forces as it is applied to the information technology industry.

As the workforce has predominantly shifted to working remotely and conducting business online, this has paved the way in providing more opportunities for cybercriminals to engage in fraudulent activities.

With the precedence of cloud migration in today’s digital world, cloud security threats are on the rise due to storage misconfigurations, data inconsistencies, and inadequate access control measures.

Network security for the remote worker can be missing the extra layer of security protection that usually exists in a physical business infrastructure. Cyber threats in the form of improperly secured VPN connections and servers have led to significant vulnerabilities in regard to company-sensitive information.

With more employees using mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets as a primary form of business computing, cybercriminals have also exploited this trend. This has contributed to an increase in malicious software (malware) attacks usually triggered by an infected text message or download.
