Cybersecurity Trends 2023

Cybersecurity should be at the top of everyone’s agenda in 2023. Here are some key trends to look into to help protect your business this new year!

Build a Security-Aware Culture

According to Verizon’s 2022 Data Breaches Investigation Report, 82% of breaches involved a human element. No matter how many firewalls your business has installed or how tightly secured your network is, one human error can make your entire business vulnerable to an attack. Everyone in your organization is responsible for guarding against malicious activity. It is important to train employees and create your own human firewalls. 

Common Types Of Human Error

An excellent way to combat threats is with managed IT services. Managed IT Services provide a cost-effective and proactive approach to business IT needs. With the use of 24/7 monitoring, managed services make it possible to identify vulnerable areas and fix problems before they happen.

Watch for Social Engineering and Ransomware

Ransomware is when a cybercriminal holds your business data hostage for a large fee. The price tag of ransom is enough to force some businesses to close their doors. Threats like these continue to evolve and come back stronger each year. It is important for your business to have an approach to cybersecurity that integrates anti-malware, network security, and phishing training for all employees. Cybercriminals use phishing emails to grab ahold of human emotion and trigger a response. Training users to spot phishing and ransomware attacks will strengthen your organization’s human firewall.  

Remote Work Cybersecurity: A New Priority

Before the rise in remote work, it was simple enough to monitor company equipment. Now, many people are working remotely and are more likely to be connecting their devices to different networks. This can lead to employees unintentionally falling victim to phishing and ransomware attacks. It’s time to train your employees!
