The fact that your online pizza order might be your security weak link is a fascinating and frightening thought. A recent article published on Forbes highlights how the nature and sophistication of cyber-security threats are evolving away from the traditional hacks and phishing attacks.
The premise is that we are lazy and predictable creatures and so typically use the same password for both our corporate logon and the various websites we register with. By hacking small outfits with weak security the cyber-criminals can simply harvest logons until they find one belonging to someone working at a corporate target.
Although the article proposes a solution of having to use ever more sophisticated detection techniques we still feel that the biggest single contributor a company can make to protecting their data is regular on-going training and education.
