Whether it’s Veganuary, Dry January or Red January, thousands start the year meaning well, but find it difficult to stick to their New Year resolutions. In fact, it’s estimated that just 8% of people will maintain January’s ‘New Year, New Me’ attitude. But we have come up with a detox that isn’t just for January - it’s for life. DynaRisk’s #CyberReady detox for 2020 aims to help people start adopting healthier information security practices.
IT capabilities have increased in complexity and individuals are constantly pressured to embrace connectivity, so the cyber threat landscape that we are exposed to has been considerably broadened. The volume and magnitude of the data collected and shared over the World Wide Web are driving a generation of sophisticated cyber criminals to constantly learn and enhance their attack strategies.
As a result, the Internet has become a landmine full of malicious links, Trojans, and viruses, forcing users 'to mind their step' in order to remain safe online. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility and consumers should not entirely rely on organisations to protect their data.
Amid a constant barrage of news regarding breaches and increasingly complex malware, cyber security can feel overwhelming. A common misconception is that keeping your data safe in a digital world is an arduous task that only IT professionals can handle. But the truth is that cyber security is neither costly or laborious. All it takes is a little awareness and consideration.
Ready to level-up your security and get #CyberReady? We made it easy for you by preparing an insightful, visual checklist to help you apply the basics. Get these right and your risks of being defrauded online will be seriously reduced.
