In this video we tackle some common myths and misconceptions about cybersecurity, most often seen in small-to-medium businesses and organizations.
The main takeaways from the video:
Myth One: "Our industry doesn’t have any cyber threats"
There is no target small enough, or a certain set of devices, manufacturers or industries that are not interesting for hackers.
It is not a matter of “if” you will get hacked, but rather of “when” it will eventually happen. Why not be prepared?
Myth Two: "My organization is too small to be a target for cyber criminals"
Going after small and medium businesses might be considerably less rewarding (in the financial sense), but the risks associated with targeting them are way lower as well.
Adopt a mindset that will allow you and your company or organization to fully grow and develop while being conscientious about digital threats.
Myth Three: "Our office PCs/laptops are only being used for work-related tasks"
Even if this is truly the case, they can still be susceptible to hacking attempts, simply because of outdated software or hardware.
In some cases, it is the companies that provide us the software that get hacked, and we bear the consequences as well!
Cybersecurity today is everyone’s responsibility - and maintaining a healthy awareness and attitude towards cybersecurity – is the key to a safer digital presence.
