The Velocity of Cyber Invasion

Time is of the essence in the world of cybersecurity. The latest figures are in, and they’re stark—breakout times have diminished to an average of just 62 minutes. Compare that to the 84 minutes from the previous year, and the trend is clear: cyber attacks are becoming faster than ever.

A Growing Threat

It’s not merely the pace that’s concerning; it’s also the sheer number of cyber criminal groups. With 34 new groups identified, the total has escalated to over 230. These adversaries are not idle; they constantly innovate, evidenced by a shocking new record: a breakout time of merely two minutes and seven seconds. That’s quicker than a coffee break—a frightening thought for any business.

The Human Factor: The Weakest Link

More than ever, cyber criminals are exploiting the human element. Phishing emails, masquerading as trustworthy sources, and social engineering tactics are just a few of the methods employed to breach defenses. Once an employee slips up, the consequences can be dire.

Your Cybersecurity Action Plan

Educate Your Employees

Awareness is your first line of defense. Equip your team with knowledge about the latest threats and train them to recognize the signs of a potential attack.

Implement Strong Password Policies

Promote the use of complex, unique passwords through reliable password managers and strengthen your login process with multi-factor authentication.

Keep Your Systems Updated

Regular updates and security patches are crucial. Neglect here invites cyber criminals to exploit vulnerabilities.

Invest in Cybersecurity Software

Quality cybersecurity software can be invaluable in detecting and thwarting threats proactively. It’s an investment in your business’s safety (and we specialize in this).

Backup Your Data
