Is your business making these cyber security mistakes?

August 25, 2022

There are many cyber security warnings every week. It can be hard to keep up. So let’s zero in on the three most common cyber security mistakes made by businesses like yours.

The first is not being strict enough with employee privilege rights. When someone changes roles, their data access rights should change too. Businesses quickly give people access to data but forget to remove it. Similarly, when someone leaves, close their accounts and terminate their rights.

The tighter your team’s privileges, the harder it is for cyber criminals to install malware. It also slows down something called a lateral movement, the second most common mistake.

Lateral movement is where criminals get access to one system, perhaps something that’s not mission-critical. But from there, they can move on to another system and another. Ultimately, they’re aiming for your email and bank account.

The last mistake is not taking this seriously. Businesses that work closely with their IT partner to prepare and protect are less likely to be attacked in the first place and will be back on their feet faster if the worst does happen.
