Cybersecurity, like Covid-19, tends to be exhausting to most people. 

We are on information overload with these topics, but that does not make them any less important.

According to Crowdstrike, a cybersecurity technology provider, there were more intrusion attempts in the first six months of 2020 that in all of 2019.  The fact that businesses were unprepared for an influx of remote workers seems to be a major reason for that.

There were rumors that some cybercriminals pulled back on attacks against hospitals at the beginning of 2020 due to the growing pandemic – but who knows how honest those rumors are, considering hackers don’t come from the most noble profession!

So, how do you protect your business, your employees and your customers’ data from these unseen threats without spending a fortune on this one initiative? 

One of the most effective ways to keep your business safe is to train your employees, because they are your biggest risk. 

People are naturally curious and they’re likely to click on things they shouldn’t. And they often don’t know best practices – take that company email address and the associated password that get reused over and over again. People use the same information for every 3rd party app that’s downloaded onto personal and company cell phones.

Scenarios like this present risks to your employees and to your company. That’s why, at ATB, we provide cybersecurity training to ensure your people are prepared. One program sends ongoing phishing campaigns to your employees, to test and see who falls for fake emails.

We also provide ongoing training that educates your users on what to look for in potential attempted breaches.

Finally, our team constantly scours the dark web for potential breaches, including breaches of your domain, your employees’ business emails, and key employees’ personal email addresses.

And user training is just one aspect of the cybersecurity strategy that ATB brings to each of our clients.
