Tuesday, January 12, 2021
With an increase of remote working due to the COVD-19 outbreak, attackers are exploiting remote workers' weakened security measures with social engineering and phishing attacks.

It’s very much common knowledge that while the huge shift in remote working has improved employee satisfaction and productivity, it has also brought with it a whole new set of problems, security being one of them.
While the majority of the population are tackling the pandemic together, cybercriminals see the massive change in the way we work as their opportunity to strike. With the world coming out of their protective office bubble and setting up in a home office environment, it’s becoming much more difficult to ensure security is replicated in everyone’s homes and across everyone’s devices.
Human Error is the one thing no security solution can prevent
While there is a great abundance of security products to ensure hackers can’t gain access to your customers’ computer/laptop, cyber criminals can still sometimes manage to slip through the net and are successful purely down to human error. Here are the different ways in which cyber criminals can get to your customers:
Phishing emails are the quickest ways for cyber criminals to act. A phishing email is sent to a large number of recipients at random, with the expectation that only a small amount of the percipients will respond. These sorts of emails encourage the recipients to click malicious links that encourage them to enter their details, in which can then be used for fraud or identity theft.
Spear-phishing emails are what it says on the tin. They are designed to intentionally target a single recipient in the organisation. Cybercriminals spend time on researching colleagues and job titles in organisations, and will pose as them asking them to click links, send information etc. For example, posing as the CEO asking a team member to purchase a gift card for a client. It’s happened to us here at Giacom multiple times!
Educating your customers’ employees is key
It’s unlikely that your customers have carried out full, extensive cyber security training for their employees to avoid the above. This is because a lot of SMBs believe that due to their size, they could fall victim to a cyber-attack. However, SMBs are the main target for cyber criminals for this exact reason. They know that SMBs are the demographic least likely to expect it and therefore be prepared for it.
