The need to protect against the very significant threat of cyberattacks is something every business should prioritize. A single cyberattack could seriously disrupt your business operations and, in a worst case scenario, could even shut you down. Phishing attacks are one of the major threats, and their prevalence is growing.
In 2018, recorded phishing attacks increased by 269%, compared to the previous year’s figures. Phishing attacks were involved in 32% of all reported data breaches. United States businesses should be especially worried, because they seem to be a primary target, accounting for nearly 86% of recorded phishing attacks.
National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is highlighting the dangers that phishing attacks pose. Of course phishing isn’t the only threat. NCSAM is also promoting awareness of other basic cybersecurity measures, but phishing is high on the list. The 2019 NCSAM theme was ‘Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT’. Nothing’s changed and cybersecurity awareness is an ongoing priority for all computer users – and that means just about everyone, not just businesses.
