Knowledge is Power

We hear the same question day in and day out. “What is the number one cause of cyberheists?” This cry is often only heard when it is too late. When people are the victim of a horrible cyber crime, they ask first if their assets can be recovered. They ask second what they can do to prevent it from happening again. Sometimes they ask what they could have done to stop it from ever happening in the first place.

We hear all kinds of speculation on what the number one way that cyberheists happen are. Some people think they are caused primarily by phishing. Some think that keyloggers are most often responsible and should be avoided at all costs. We hear people asking us about vulnerabilities in the SWIFT program and if they should be avoided. The answer, of course, is much simpler than that. The number one cause of cyberheists is ignorance.

It’s that simple. The number one issue with cyberheists is not that most businesses aren’t choosing to prepare for them – it’s that they don’t even know that they should be. Cyberheists are still treated as a niche occurrence despite affecting hundreds of millions of individuals every year in the last decade. Whether big or small, this is a serious crime, and one seriously hard to uncover. The biggest problem is easily apparent: the people who have the power to prevent it often don’t even know that they should be doing so.

This is why so many cyberheist issues aren’t even raised until after the theft itself has happened. In the wake of a virtual crime, the victim can be left feeling helpless. They may not know where to turn. They may not know if there is any hope of recovering what was once theirs.
