We all receive dozens, if not hundreds of emails every single day, but did you know that as many as one in 284* contain malware that could potentially leave you or your organisation open to a damaging breach or compromise. So, in a company of 1000 people, receiving a modest 10 external emails each per working day that’s over 8,000 attacks on your company throughout the year. And if you think your anti-virus software will take care of this, then consider that studies have shown that the initial detection rate for new viruses by AV can be as low as 5%**.
If you’re confident that this malware lies in unopened attachments or at the other end of unclicked links then congratulations on implementing an effective security awareness program across your organisation. But if you think that your employees are still likely to open that spreadsheet purporting to contain your senior exec’s expense claims or will blindly follow that link to a bogus company satisfaction survey then here’s how we can help:
- Educate – 7Safe’s customised awareness sessions can help put security at the forefront of everyone’s minds and give practical tips on how to avoid being the next victim.
- Plan for what if – one day, that malware will break through. 7Safe can help you establish the policies and technical capabilities that you need to quickly identify and eradicate the attack.
- Find out how good you are – Test yourself through dry runs or phishing tests and track your progress.
7Safe is a leading provider of cyber security and digital investigation advice, education and technical services to all technology-enabled organisations.
Since 2001, we have been helping organisations to develop, maintain and grow their cyber security and information investigation capabilities, increasing their overall trust in the systems that they operate, the information that they hold and the people who have access to it.
