I’ve Got Good News and Bad News

In a recent study by cybersecurity company Webroot, over 600 IT decision makers were surveyed…and the results showed that there’s still lots of work to be done. While 100 percent of the respondents said that they had conducted some sort of employee cyber training, 79 percent also said they weren’t really ready for serious cybersecurity threats. Research also showed that the average cost of attacks is decreasing (526K in the US) and that leading types of attacks are shifting from malware to phishing. Bottom line? Keep educating, remember device-level security, watch for phishy emails and… plan for the worst. We know, not fun…but important.
