However, global cyber threats continue to develop at a rapid pace, with an increasing number of data breaches each year. Indeed, the lion’s share of security threats stems from the actions of users.
In most cases they are caused by lack of proper training or misallocation of permissions.
It is advisable that permission levels in a system are well assigned to each user in order to control who can access certain files and processes.
In this context, the cybersecurity challenges are enormous.
In 2021, two thirds of the world’s population will have a mobile phone, 60% will have access to the internet and more than half of them will be active on social networks. It is therefore safe to assume that almost 100% of companies will be working with IT systems by 2022.
The Covid-19 crisis has accelerated the massive use of teleworking and e-commerce, both of which have led to an increase in cyber risk.
On average, it takes 280 days for a company to correct a cyber-attack.
The massification of data usage, the decentralisation of payments and the digitisation of processes make cyber investments indispensable. Therefore, companies that excel in terms of cybersecurity will be better prepared to deal with potential attacks.
Undoubtedly, humans are the most vulnerable link in the cybersecurity pipeline.
That is why companies today, more than ever, are aware that they need cybersecurity experts accompanied by optimal solutions to respond to possible attacks.
