Blame The New Hires

Have you taken on any new hires recently?

What was your induction process like? Did it include cyber security training?

It really should. Because 60% of your new hires are at risk from something called social engineering.

Not sure what that means?

It’s a clever way that criminals trick people into making a bank payment, clicking an unsafe link or downloading a file containing malware. For example, they might hack into someone’s account and send an email that seems to be from a real supplier, changing the bank details for invoice payments.

With so many people working from home, these socially engineered attacks have risen. Possibly because we’re less alert to the dangers as we feel safe at home.

Do you know, it’s not just new hires that are at risk from social engineering. All it takes is a momentary lapse in judgement by anyone for your business to suffer a loss.

Fortunately, there is a simple solution to the dangers of social engineering: Cyber security training.
