Connecting the Dots: The Human Factor and the Cost of Cybercrime

Written By:

The recently published 2017 Cost of Cyber Crime Study from Ponemon Institute and Accenture delivered some sobering statistics:

  • Organizations pay an average annualized cost of $11.7 million* to deal with cybercrime (up 23% from the prior year).
  • Organizations are dealing with an average of 130 successful security breaches each year (an uptick of 27% year over year)
  • The average cost of cybercrime has risen by 62% since 2013.

Is Conventional Wisdom Weakening Your Passwords?

Written By:

You’re setting up a new online account and need to create a new password, so you think of a word you can remember, capitalize the first letter, add some digits and end with an exclamation point. The password is 12 characters long, and includes numerals, symbols, and upper- and lowercase letters. It’s probably a strong password, right?
New research suggests that some steps people use to strengthen passwords actually make them more vulnerable to attackers, and that its time to rethink the standard advice about passwords and consider new approaches to security awareness training.
With that in mind, we explore the crossroads of science and password policies, usability and security education, and share three tips for creating stronger passwords.

Simulated Attacks: Keeping Your Phishing Statistics Honest

Written By:

As pioneers in the development of simulated phishing attacks, we naturally recommend using these assessment tools as foundational components of security awareness training programs. But just as we believe there is more to successful security education than phishing tests, we feel there is more to measuring program success than tracking end-user click rates. And that’s for one simple reason: these metrics don’t provide a full view into your organization’s susceptibility.

GDPR, PSD2, and NIS: The Role of Security Awareness Training

Written By:

There has been a lot of talk about pending GDPR requirements and the penalties associated with non-compliance, but GDPR is not the only EU cybersecurity legislation that will be affecting organizations in the near future. Alan Levine, a former Fortune 500 CISO and current Security Advisor to Wombat, spoke to Wombat Wisdom Conference attendees last month about the GDPR and two other regulations — PSD2 and the NIS Directive — and discussed the role he believes employee security awareness training will play with regard to organizational compliance with these laws.
Following, we offer quick overviews about the GDPR, PSD2, and the NIS Directive; Levine’s take on these pieces of legislation; and links to additional resources.
