Why Security Incident Management Matters
Did you know that resolving a security breach in less than 200 days lowers the cost by roughly 37%?
Through security incident management and implementing your organization’s incident response plan, an attack doesn’t have to result in financial loss. Incident reporting is key to mitigating the potential financial damage these criminals can inflict. If employees can identify hackers’ efforts as quickly as possible, and your team has a solid incident response plan to block them, the impact from the incident can be minimized. READ MORE
USPS Phishing Scams
With the enormous spike in online shopping since early 2020, USPS phishing scams are also on the rise. Cyber criminals are impersonating the USPS and other shipping companies with email messages related to package deliveries. Consumers and business purchasing agents who are waiting for multiple packages may have difficulty recognizing scam emails.
Did you hear about the hacker who alerted a guy in Arizona that his security camera wasn’t secure? This hacker was a good guy but most aren’t, so the safe bet is to learn how to secure IoT devices to guard against malicious intent.
If an unauthorized person gains access to your network or device, they can manipulate the functioning of the device or even access your private conversations and information from your home.
GLS will be attending theGartner conference Sept 20-22 in Orlando. We’re now scheduling meetings with companies that would like to learn more about how GLS’ security awareness and anti-phishing training can be customized to best protect your organization against cyber threats.
Business Email Compromise (BEC) is one of the most insidious and financially damaging online crimes, scamming roughly three times as many organizations as malware and slightly more than spear phishing. Because of this, we have created two outstanding segments on BEC: Best Practices Module: Avoiding Business Email Compromise and a Shock and Awareness Video Module: Business Email Compromise. This is such an important topic that we recommend it be taught to all employees.
This training in English is available now, with other languages coming soon!
