Cyber Threats – Security in the Workplace

Cyber Threats – Security in the Workplace

In our world of cloud storage, internet and email, one wouldn’t be blamed for spending their business’s security budget solely on the latest antivirus and computer software, which, of course, is absolutely necessary for the protection of your company. However, overlooking the security of physical data is a grave mistake that can have terrible consequences. Resulting in serious Cyber Threats.

Data stored on devices such as DVDs, CDs, USBs, hard-drives, and, of course, paper, needs to be treated with care. Even in these modern times, there are still criminals looking for complacent businesses to steal their physical data. This is often done when this data is disposed of insecurely, such as simply putting whole documents into the recycle bin. If these documents contain personal information, doing this is actually in breach of Australian privacy laws.

Cyber Threats

Once sensitive information is in the wrong hands, it can be sold and distributed online. For example, something as simple as an old resume is enough for criminals to create a fake identity online to wreak havoc. All of these items can be found in the archives of businesses, so, for these sorts of cyber criminals, unsecured business storage systems and rubbish bins are a goldmine just waiting to be found and abused.
