Cyber crime is a serious threat to organisations. With many of us working online, to protect yourself and your organisation it is more important than ever that you, as the first line of defence, are aware of scams.
Cyber criminals are firmly focused on the UK market. The past couple of years have seen the threat amplified by the coronavirus pandemic as cyber criminals try to capitalise on the chaos. Our 2022 Cyber Security survey found that more than a quarter of organisations had experienced a cyber-attack in the last 12 months, up from 20 per cent in 2021.
95 per cent of cyber security breaches are due to human error, so user behaviour and education is the best way to protect your organisation against many of the most common scams.
In this series we highlight some of the scams we see across our client base. We aim to equip you and your teams with the knowledge and training required to avoid scams and online fraud.
