We must fight this differently as the current methods are failing big time.
Let’s just ask each other, are you OK with the change I have just made
Organised cyber criminals now target your employees, customers and suppliers, not you directly, which they then use to convince you to send your money to them instead of the right place. This creates a bottom line impact on your business and the cost is much more than the direct money paid to them that has been lost, it is the lost of trust which is even worse as affects your ongoing income.
They use methods to by-pass IT, passwords and your internal systems to get in as it is about playing on your trust of each other as without trust, we just can’t operate a business. We are being asked to double check every change request to combat this, but this is time consuming and subject to human error as many are unwilling to take this extra time as they know better, exactly what the criminals play on.
The only way we can fight them is coming together by using the simple process of asking each other are we OK with the change which happens automatically.
At end of the day, this is all about your money and how we keep it being taken.
