As more employees work from home, the risk of cyber-attacks grows. In 2020, between the months of March and July, nearly half of all businesses dealt with some sort of digital disruption. Some of the most common digital disruptions were:

Worker Productivity Losses
When hackers infiltrate company computers, they might steal employee identities. This won’t hurt your business directly, but it will indirectly, as workers have less time for work while they grapple with their identity being stolen.

Internet Of Things Infiltrations
Now that so many “smart” devices can be hooked up to a central server, there are more avenues than ever for hackers to gain access to sensitive company data.

Ransomware Attacks
Businesses of all sizes are falling victim to ransomware attacks, but it’s the small and midsize ones on a tight budget that really suffer from the fallout.

To stop these kinds of attacks, educate your workforce on best practices for avoiding hackers and make sure their systems are up-to-date with good cyber security software. Nothing is bulletproof, but you can do a lot to protect your company.
