Why subscribe to IT security?

In practice, it has been shown that employees' awareness of IT security is strengthened after appropriate training. This is reflected in a lower susceptibility to phishing emails. But after some time, awareness decreases again and employees become more susceptible to cyber attacks again. We want to counteract this development with our "Human Firewall" offering. The goal is to make your employees aware of security problems and the dangers of cyber attacks through regular measures, so that they can form the first line of defense against hackers and cybercriminals in the long term or become a human firewall. Especially for SMEs, municipalities, associations and foundations, it is important that contributors are sensitized to IT security-related risks.

IT security as an obligation

4 reasons why IT security is indispensable, especially for SMEs, municipalities, associations and foundations

Data leaks and other IT security incidents can massively damage your organization's reputation and trust.

IT security remains one of the most important topics for the management level of any organization.

Ransom demands for so-called ransomware attacks can easily amount to hundreds of thousands to several million francs, depending on the size of the organization. Restoring the IT infrastructure after a cyberattack can therefore be very costly for your organization.

Business continuity management

Without a functioning IT infrastructure, most of the important processes in most organizations will no longer work, resulting in a breakdown of day-to-day business.

What is phishing?

Phishing attacks pose a serious threat to the IT security of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as municipalities, associations and foundations. These fraudulent attempts to steal sensitive information such as passwords, credit card details, and personal identification credentials have become extremely sophisticated and aim to infiltrate even well-protected systems.

Phishing is a method by which fraudsters pretend to be legitimate organizations in order to scam information. This is often done via fake emails, websites or even social media. Recipients are tricked into clicking on fake links or giving out personal information without realizing that they are victims of a scam.

Why are SMEs, municipalities, associations and foundations particularly at risk?

The forms of organisation mentioned are often less well protected than large companies or institutions. They may not have the resources for sophisticated security measures or training for employees. Phishers exploit these vulnerabilities to penetrate their systems.

Phishing campaign

Phishing campaigns are simulated phishing carried out by linkyard to train employees and sensitize them to the dangers of phishing attacks. In these simulated attacks, employees are sent fake emails or messages that resemble real phishing attacks. The aim is to see how employees react to these fake attacks and then provide them with feedback and training to improve their behavior.
