Small businesses are particularly vulnerable to social engineering attack. This term refers to cyber attacks which use not technology but people to penetrate systems. Cyber criminals are opportunistic, so larger corporations and every industry type is also at risk.
Simple human error can be catastrophic for a business when it comes to IT security. From falling for a phishing email, inadvertently installing ransomeware to leaving their laptop unattended in a public place, every staff member has a responsibility to uphold the company’s IT security. It is the responsibility of the CEO to conduct relevant training workshops with employees as well as implementing strict policies throughout the company.
Our penetration tests are designed to challenge your staff in this field. Unannounced tests on your company help you identify employees who need further training and make common mistakes. Hold your staff to the highest standards when it comes to securing your company’s data and confidential client information because in the eyes of the law the CEO or business owner themselves is responsible.
CTRL IT can work with CEOs, business owners and staff members to help educate and improve awareness about IT security threats. We can help you protect yourselves against malicious cyber attacks.
