Every software which is not up to date is not a secure software. Company should also check his security essentials as per past records.

Cyber Attacks are not obvious, but company could categorize the Cyber Attacks in their own form, according to their business strategies. There is not the technology only which brings cyber risks, sociological and psychological aspects are also responsible for it.

ISMS (information Security Management System) is a must for every company, which will prepare new policies and procedures to protect confidential data of company. According to study of experts, 40% companies are not fully sure about their security methods that are they able to prevent cyber risk.

5.Risk regarding Human Factor: Human factor also plays a vital role in company’s Risk Management Approach. Less technological minds are a big reason behind cyber security risk of any company. Employees of company can do following things which could create risks for the company:

  • Employees (Former/ Current) can use social engineering, Remote access and other techniques to tamper information.
  • To get revenge, financial gain and to make fun.                                                                

To reduce these risks, treat your employees in a good manner. According to Stephen R. Covey,” Always treat your employees exactly as you want them to treat your best customers.”

6.Lack of Information Security Training:  It is the responsibility of the company to make aware his employees for information security and cyber security. This is the reason at this stage of technology companies are increasing funds for training of employees. 50 percent companies are taking this training as a priority. Companies can hire Cyber Security experts and can contact cyber security companies to organise training for thier employees. This training will make all the employees able to understand unwanted and suspicious activities in their computers and networks. If employees of any company are not aware about this, then company is at big risk.
