Did you know that there are an estimated 200 billion connected devices in the world? As the number of devices continues to increase, so do the security risks associated with these devices.
According to a Forbes report from March 2020, total internet hits have surged by 50-70%. While issues of server bandwidth and feasibility for remote work-from-home models are prominent, there is an underlying issue created by this surge: our dependence on virtual operations increases, vulnerability to malware, phishing attempts and cybercrimes follows suit. With so much resting on your company’s data networks, MDL Technology’s cybersecurity services can help.
Implementing Cybersecurity Training
Providing your staff with cybersecurity training can not only help put protective measures in place but can also boost employees’ individual skill sets — now more than ever, instilling confidence in your employees that they can handle current and future crises is an investment worth making.
Arming yourself and your team with a base knowledge of cyber threats can help you stay prepared.
When discussing best practices of cybersecurity with your team, you can educate them on threats like spam, malware and phishing and what those look like — i.e. an error with seemingly no explanation or “valid” antivirus warnings.
Additionally, explaining the importance of creating strong passwords and practicing email and browsing habits in line with your company’s internet and social media policies can help develop the building blocks of a cognizant, confident team.
