|‘Reputation is everything’ to an organisation and lax security could cost a fortune
If an organisation suffers a breach, they are putting all their customers at risk of theft or fraud; be it a business or a public sector organisation.
More & more ‘business’ is now done online but all too often organisations neglect their online security. They will only share office keys with trusted individuals and ensure customer details are securely filed away, but when it comes to looking after their cyber security, these kind of steps aren’t always taken.
Cyber Aware’s research with Experian earlier this year has shown over half of respondents (52%) aged 18-25 and 27% of respondents from all age groups reuse their email password across multiple accounts. If the same password is re-used for different accounts, it means that if hackers steal a password for a business’ less important account, they can use it to access the most important ones.
This is a problem because an organisation’s email account can be a ‘treasure trove’ of data for a cyber criminal who can use it to commit identity fraud or financial theft. If an organisation suffers a breach, they are putting all their customers / clients at risk of theft or fraud.
