Cybersecurity Services Provided by ManpowerGroup
Tamás Fehér, Managing Director, ManpowerGroup Hungary
The coronavirus pandemic has opened a new chapter in the history of cybersecurity. The number of cyberattacks has increased manifold in some countries. Hackers, fraudsters and spammers exploit the widening security gaps caused by remote working and take advantage of people’s increased fears.
Many companies had to provide remote working opportunities to a large number of employees overnight. On the one hand, this resulted in the suspension of certain security requirements. On the other, hardware used by employees in their homes is usually less well protected against outside attacks than computers in the corporate network.
In many cases, users are lured to data phishing sites stealing banking data or requesting them to download malware such as ransomware with the false promise of providing important coronavirus-related information. As a result, you need to extend your focus beyond technology when trying to protect yourself against cyberattacks. You should also consider your business processes, data management and user awareness.
ManpowerGroup’s Experis IT business is committed to raising customers’ security awareness, protecting them more efficiently, as well as monitoring and detecting cyberattack attempts. Experis is the leading cybersecurity and monitoring provider in Israel, which is a great reference in itself considering that this country is globally known as the cradle of cybersecurity.
Small- and medium-sized enterprises are increasingly affected by cyberattacks. Based on market data, 43% of attacks are targeted at this segment and the ratio is rising. Although most SMEs are not appropriately prepared to fend off such attacks, they cannot afford to spend millions on preparation and audits. For this reason, Experis designed a cost-effective cybersecurity audit package providing fast and efficient support to SMEs’ management and IT managers.
As part of this package, Experis evaluates processes and technical preparedness, provides recommendations based on the results, and can even hold online training courses and tests to enhance users’ security awareness. It also develops an action plan for customers to ensure a fast and efficient response in the event of a potential cyberattack.
