The massive transition to remote work turned out to be a factor that influenced the cybersecurity of Polish companies, reported news portal Newseria quoted by the Warsaw Business Journal.
Last year, almost every fifth of them reported an increase in the number of hacking attacks.
Their goal, which is also the weakest link in the entire cybersecurity system, is most often employees and their e-mail boxes. In the event of a phishing attack, they can be used by hackers as an entry point into an organization.
However, the employees themselves often show carelessness, e.g. by sending business correspondence to their private, poorly protected e-mail boxes. Therefore, as ING Tech Poland experts emphasize, the first line of defense of companies against cyberattacks is to raise the awareness of employees, wrote Newseria. In the second step, technical security is needed, it said.
