According to an IBM study, 95% of business cyber-attacks are caused by human error—and it’s typically the things we take for granted as the root cause:
- Click carefully: Hackers are creating emails and landing pages that look real, enticing you to click and provide secret credentials. Always hover over the button or link to examine the URL and make sure it matches the site it’s claiming to be before you click.
- Take precautions: Web browsers have options (check the preferences) that flag fraudulent sites so use them.
- Protect passwords: obvious right? Humans typically get password lazy. Don't reuse passwords. Don't share passwords and make them challenging. Passwords are your initial line of protection.
Remember, even with security software packages and company processes in place, protecting private data has to start with people.
