Hikvision Tips to Reduce Security Concerns, Identify Phishing Threats

The SecurityInfoWatch.com article, “The Security and Social Media Dilemma,” provides tips to develop a security strategy for organizational social media policies to reduce threats and security concerns.

From the article: “While zero-day vulnerabilities, ransomware and unpatched software continue to pose significant threats themselves, a new and potentially more dangerous threat continues to grow within the corporate environment – one’s own employees. For example, an April 2018 Ponemon Institute survey of IT security professionals across 700 organizations reported that the average cost of a single [security] breach due to employees or others with access was over $8.7 million.”

Recommendations to reduce threats included the creation of a social media security policy and a focus on employee training. “Employees should be aware of how social engineering campaigns try to manipulate them into giving up information and should be trained in identifying threats such as phishing attacks, malicious links and websites. The Infosec Institute reports that over 50 percent of all internet users receive at least one phishing email a day but 97 percent cannot identify a phishing email–and one in 25 users will click!” according to the article.

Hikvision’s Director of Cybersecurity outlines examples of phishing in a two-part blog series designed to help employees and partners reduce security concerns by identifying phishing threats.
