A new report uncovers a whopper of a statistic. According to a report by Menlo Security, a third of all organizations experience a ransomware attack once a week. Further, one in 10 experience a ransomware attack more than once a day.
That stunning number is taking an obvious toll on security professionals. The survey asked respondents about their biggest concerns relating to the increase in attacks. 46% said that their biggest concerns were employees ignoring security advice and clicking on links and malware.
The human error is the largest cause of breaches, and the biggest entry point is phishing. Reducing the amount of phishing reaching the inbox in the first place will drastically limit the chances of an employee clicking on a malicious link or attachment.
