I bet you’ve received an email along those lines before, haven’t you?
These phishing emails promising you thousands, if not millions of pounds from a wealthy relative, if you just send over your bank details.
Erm, no thanks.
But while most of us are clued-up to this kind of nonsense, the scammers are getting smarter.
Would you be so sure that a member of your team wouldn’t fall for an email from someone they know, asking them to change some payment details?
Or to log into their account to “update their information”?
You and your staff are your biggest weakness when it comes to a data breach.
Not because anyone has any ill-intent. But simply because some of these tricksters are so believable.
Especially with the work from home revolution. The number of scams has gone up enormously in the last few weeks.
For this reason, it’s really important to train your people – ALL of your people (including yourself) – in cyber security.
With cyber criminals getting more and more sophisticated, you can’t really afford poor judgement.
