Cybersecurity Is for Life - Not Just October

Security PromoEveryone must remain cyber aware and take security seriously — not just IT professionals. Everyone.

Research shows the average cost of a data breach to organisations is at an all-time high at $4.24 million.1 From remote work to skills gaps, several factors can impact security and the severity of the threats that remain a persistent and formidable presence in daily life.

Join us this October to find helpful resources and participate in a host of events to train up, remain vigilant and stay secure. 

On top of this all we have a special offer for you during this awareness month. You will receive a 25% discount OR a free GK Polaris Accelerate subscription when you book a security training course. View the offer.

My Password is Too Strong for Attackers

While having a strong password can help keep most bad actors out, it may not keep all out. In this video, James talks about the ways attackers may take advantage of the shortcomings of password authentication and how to avoid becoming a victim.

The cyber myths debunked in this video:

- My password is too strong for an attack

- I’m not important enough to attack

Cyber Attacks Only Come From Outside Sources

It’s hard to believe that attacks may come from internal sources; for some, it’s the last place they’d expect. But, unfortunately, attackers may be closer than you think. James covers a few examples of security incidents from internal sources and the ways to prevent them.

The cyber myths debunked in this video:

- I can always spot or recognize an attacker or a breach

- We've not been breached before, so our security plan is good enough for the future

- I use security products, so I don't have anything to worry about

Social Media: My 'Friends' Wouldn't Scam Me

“We’re friends, right? My friends wouldn’t try to scam me.” In this video, James breaks down the various ways attackers can use a person’s friends list on social media to gain access to sensitive information.

The cyber myths debunked in this video:

- Those I know through social media can't hurt me

- I only visit common websites, so I'm safe

- I can always spot a scam because they are obvious
