Cybercriminals never take a vacation. In fact, 2020 gave them
reason and renewed motivation to ramp up their nefarious efforts.
Phishing incidents nearly doubled in frequency from 2019 to
2020, from 114,702 incidents in 2019, to 241,324 incidents in 2020,
according to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Overall,
phishing reigned as the most common type of cyber crime last
year, according to the FBI.
The idea that technology can prevent all cyber-related incidents has
never been further from the truth because cybercriminals know
the easiest way in is through your humans. Security leaders must
understand that there is no such thing as a perfect, fool-proof,
impenetrable secure environment. Many organizations fall into the
trap of trying to use technology as the only means of defending
their networks and forget that the power of human awareness
and intervention is paramount in arriving at a highly secured state.
