"According to leading industry and government reports, over 90% of all cyber attacks are successfully executed with information stolen from employees who unwittingly give away their system ID and access credentials to hackers." Identity Management Institute.
"The most common, easy, and low cost method used to steal access and other sensitive information from employees and other system users is spear phishing. Spear phisihing is often a fake email asking potential victims to click a URL and fill out a form on a fake website or click on attachments and links which download malware onto the users' computing devices leading to unauthorized access." Identity Management Institute.
So what can your business do to protect confidential data from being exposed? One of the easiest things your business can do is provide training and policies to remind employees of the risks and threats that could affect the business.

With some assistance from River Run, we can provide specific training to your staff such as what not to download or which attachments not to open.
