We’ve been seeing a lot of clever Phishing email attacks lately, where the hacker gains access to your email and plays a long game. Once employees realise what is happening, the first response is quite naturally one of sheer panic.
If you are a company owner or team leader, it’s important that you can remain calm in a crisis and can inspire those around you to do the same. In some situations, though, it’s hard to achieve calm when it feels like the walls are falling down around you. Technology related disasters can test even the most stoic of leaders and cause mass panic.
Hackers might pretend to be you, emailing your staff asking them to make a bank payment. The message will be laced with urgency and you’d be surprised how many staff will fall for it.
Once your email has been compromised, there are many things they can do to damage your business. Seeing such a situation unravel in front of your eyes will inevitably cause panic, confusion and distress. Our advice is to not put yourself at risk in the first place, and to take measures now to prevent an attack in the future.
These kinds of scenarios are common to us and we’re constantly adding new tools to our toolkit of services to help to protect you. Be a good leader and take proactive action to protect your business and your employees. Contact us to get the ball rolling.
