What are some of the top cybersecurity threats for 2022?

Here are some of the top cybersecurity threats organisations are facing in 2022. 

Social Engineering
Any network is hackable if an employee can be duped into sharing access.

Third-Party Exposure
Vendors, clients, and app integrations with poor security can provide access to an otherwise well-protected network.

Configuration Mistakes
Your cybersecurity investments are only as strong as they are configured correctly.

Human Activated Risk
User education and visibility for IT is essential to ensure those with network access and those handling sensitive data are maintaining cyber best practices.

Hackers are targeting back-ups and using extortion more and more to push receiving the ransom payment from their victims.

Mobile Devices
Every mobile device is a gateway to your network and sensitive business data.

Lack of resource and expertise
Human-led cyber attacks require human-led threat hunting. Unfortunately, skilled threat hunters are few and far between. 

Internet of Things (IoT)
Smart technology users may not realise that any IoT device can be hacked to obtain network access. Securing your network starts with understanding what's on it.

How can I reduce my employees click-rate?

This is an area where the cybersecurity experts at Spear Shield thrive! We've worked with organisations to help reduce employee click rates from 70+% to 0% without the need for any end-user awareness training.

Online training content doesn't work.

Classroom based training gets forgotten.

Static email banners get ignored.

Speak with the team about real-time end-user awareness training to help mitigate the risk of a phishing attack in your organisation.

Why Spear Shield for Managed Detection Response Services?

Other managed detection and response (MDR) services simply notify you of attacks or suspicious events. Then it's up to you to manage things from there.

With the Managed Threat Hunting and Incident Response (MTR) Service provided by Spear Shield, your organisation is backed by an elite team of threat hunters and response experts who take targeted actions on your behalf to neutralise even the most sophisticated threats.
