Cyberheist was fully updated for 2016 and written for the IT team and owners / management of Small and Medium Enterprise, which includes non-profits, local and state government, churches, and any other organization with more than a few thousand dollars in their bank operating account.
Why? Cybercrime has gone pro over the last 5 years. Attacks have become much more sophisticated and intense. The bad guys are now going after your employees. They bypass your firewall / antivirus security software and ‘social engineer’ (manipulate) your employees to click on a malicious link or open an infected attachment. From that point forward they hack into your network and put keyloggers on accounting systems. You can guess the rest. A few days later the organization’s bank accounts are empty, or valuable corporate intellectual property is stolen. Another cyberheist victim. It’s happening right now, as you read this.
"The book is well crafted and an intoxicating read. I could not put it down. - Paul Wright
"As both an IT Pro and a businessman, I highly recommend this book for anyone concerned about online threats." - C. Contor
"If you fall victim to a cyberheist after reading Sjouwerman’s book, shame on you.” - Dirk A. D. Smith
If you rely on only security software like antivirus to protect your organization, you have a false sense of security. The human element of security is being neglected. An surprising percentage organizations do not have an effective security awareness program in place. And that resulted in thousands of organizations being the victim of a cyberheist.
Yes, you need endpoint protection, but you also need to train all employees. Effective Security Awareness Training is no luxury anymore, it is a must.
It all starts with owners and management understanding the problem, and realizing that this is an urgent matter that needs to be addressed. What most people do not realize is that as opposed to personal FDIC-isured bank accounts, corporate bank accounts are not automatically insured against cyberfraud.
When your operating accounts gets emptied out, many banks refuse to take responsibility, and often sue their commercial customer as a preemptive measure. Just read the Patco horror story. The good thing is that new-school Security Awareness Training, combined with frequent simulated phishing attacks will help mitigate this cyberheist threat to a very large degree.
