The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) recently released their 2019 annual review, outlining the top forms of cyber-attack that both UK individuals and organisations experienced this past year. As 2020 approaches, be sure to review the following data points for a better understanding of the biggest cyber-threats facing your organisation and best practices for bolstering your cyber-security programme.
o Train employees on how to detect and report any signs of phishing (eg emails from unknown senders, suspicious links or unsecure web addresses).
o Conduct routine software updates.
o Install anti-malware and virus protection on all organisational devices.
· International threats—Of the 1,800 cyber-incidents that the NCSC has handled, a significant portion of attacks came from hostile nations—including Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. To mitigate your organisation’s international cyber-threats:
o Ensure compliance with all GDPR requirements regarding international data operations.
o Communicate with your local authority if you suspect an international cyber-threat.
o Make sure your organisation’s website has the proper controls to prevent hackers from infiltrating your payment system.
o Choose a trusted payment processor for all online transactions.
More than anything, you need robust cyber-insurance to protect against these evolving threats. For more information and cover solutions, contact Willis IRM.
