Cybercriminals Target the Marketing, C-Level and IT Worlds

According to research, the human factor behind 82% of data breaches shows that employees become the weakest link when it comes to corporate cybersecurity. Marketing, C-level and IT department employees are at high risk for cyber attacks. World leader in embedded cybersecurity, WatchGuard provides digital security advice for corporate corporate departments.

According to research, 64% of CFOs, CHROs and CMOs are the least involved in cybersecurity threat management activities. However, they are also the protectors of the data that is often tried to be obtained by cybercriminals. C-level executives are increasingly being targeted by cybercriminals. Cybersecurity is no longer confined to IT departments, so the risk of breaches and attacks touches every department of an organization. World leader in integrated cybersecurity, WatchGuard; evaluates and advises on attacks against marketing, C-level and IT departments.

Marketing, C-level and IT World at the Target of Cyber Attacks

Marketers, the outgoing voice of the company, are perceived as an easy target for cybercriminals. Often marketers’ email addresses and other contact information are easily accessible, making them easy targets for hackers to exploit in phishing attacks. The rise in cyberattacks is raising concern in various positions within organizations. C-level and board departments are encouraging cybersecurity measures to be strengthened in this area.

As for top executives, they are a prime target for cybercriminals as they have unrestricted access to the most sensitive company files that could pose a security threat if accessed. However, administrators often aren’t the ones who let malware into the network, as access points and contact information are protected by additional threat mitigation measures compared to the average employee. Instead, assistants who often have similar access credentials but are not protected by the same cybersecurity measures pose a risk.

The IT department, on the other hand, has greater access than other departments to the most critical business data, including critical credentials and encryption keys. This makes IT departments an extremely lucrative target for cybercriminals. Apart from that, the people working in IT are responsible for running the entire digital infrastructure of the company, and if this infrastructure falls into the hands of hackers, there is a danger that business will stop very soon.

4 Suggestions to Prevent Cyber Attacks Against Institutions

World leader in cyber security, WatchGuard, offers the following recommendations to institutions in order to prevent data breaches and increase cyber security measures in this field:

  1. Promote cybersecurity education. Investing in employee knowledge is one of the best ways to prevent a cyberattack from happening. Training should be organized regularly and offer a holistic approach involving all employees.
  2. Adopt zero trust network access. The “trust none, verify all” mentality is based on a zero trust paradigm and is implemented through authentication to access business equipment and resources, network segmentation and access control management (ACM).
  3. Implement and implement periodic data backup and restore processes. An encrypted cloud may be the most secure solution, making it much more difficult for cybercriminals to access files. But when data is stored in the cloud, companies that control servers need to constantly update their security measures.
  4. Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA serves as an extra layer of security. It is an authentication method that uses two or more mechanisms to authenticate the user. These can be individual apps, security keys, devices, or biometric data.
