Resist cyber attacks
The consequences of cyber-attacks are costly, stressful and confusing for employees, and in the worst case, can paralyze a companys actions indefinitely.
Fortunately, the standards (including ISO) have been developed to help companies prepare for and respond effectively to cyber-attacks and their consequences.
As technology develops and all sectors of the economy continue to move towards digitalisation, the number of cyber-collapses is naturally increasing. Cybercriminals are resourceful, they are becoming smarter and more innovative, and they are committing crimes with increasingly devastating consequences. Each of us can face crimes ranging from social media hacking efforts, phishing attacks, to more serious cases of data being encrypted with squeezing software.
By taking care of the health of their employees, with the rapid spread of COVID-19, companies found solutions practically for all professions to adapt to working from home. As a result of public pressure, reliance on information systems and online solutions has increased, while cyber security threats have also increased.
According to the Global Economic Forum “The Global Risk Report 2022”, the use of malware increased by 358% in 2020 and the number of ransomware attacks increased by 435%.* Their rapid growth outstrips our ability to effectively prevent or respond to attacks.
A step in the right direction is to realize that your business could potentially be the target of a cyber attack. Relying on and hoping for success that your business will not fall victim to cybercriminals is a game that can be too costly to lose. The ISO 27001 standard is a good starting point and a tool for self-protection. A set of standard requirements activities, such as timely risk assessment, implementation of control measures, guidelines, training of employees and other activities, will allow the company to be prepared for various threats and to deal effectively with various incidents.
