The first quarter of 2019 was busy for Cybersecurity professionals in general. Even though people are more aware of cyber-attacks and threats, crimes related to cybersecurity still on the rise and putting companies at risk. According to the last Risk Radar report released by Integrity 360, billions of compromised records, data leaks from cloud misconfigurations and record-setting cyber-threats were some of the main findings for the first period of the year. On the other hand, the lack of qualified professionals is not helping the situation either.
When it comes to Cybersecurity, blockchain might be one of the trendiest topics in 2018, it’s everywhere and it’s usually surrounded by loads of questions. Most of people might think that is all related to cryptocurrency, but in fact is much more than that. In this article we will try to clarify what is Blockchain and the main terminology you need to know, even though isn’t part of your daily routine.
The “Cyber Security Risk Radar” report published by Integrity 360 last July shown the main cyber threats which were on the rise during the first part of this year. Most of them are well known for the IT Pros, but as usual, they are coming in different versions, more dangerous and offering more risk to the companies.
Our latest study conducted by New Horizons Corporation found that IT training is still a challenge for a lot of companies. The lack of qualified IT pros will make a huge impact on the growth of those companies. The 2018 State of IT Training Report shows that 40% of employees who receive little or poor training leave their positions within the first year. As a result, employee turnover costs companies 20% of that person’s yearly salary, which means a huge impact on productivity and innovation.
New Horizons Ireland is offering a complimentary tool to help you determine the extent that your employees can recognise and avoid common cyber threats like phishing, malware, and non-secure websites, which in turn will measure how well your organisation’s data is protected.
Cybersecurity has been a concern in all kinds of business generating a loss of profit year after year. The best way to be ready to confront the attacks and breaches is to invest in constant training and knowledge.
