Despite all the preventative steps being taken by organisations around the world, cybercrime is continuing to grow at an alarming rate.
Industry research shows that, during 2022, there was a ransomware attack launched every 11 seconds and the global annual cost of cyberattacks to business reached $20 billion. Most leaders realise it now a case of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’ their organisations will fall victim.
Interestingly, 94% of cyberattacks use email as their attack vector. An employee clicking on a link or opening a malicious attachment can grant an attacker access to an organisation’s entire IT infrastructure.
