#cyberfraud | #cybercriminals | American Consumers Recognize Their Role in Preventing Cybercrime, are Bothered by Perceived Inconveniences of Advanced Security

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

BROOKFIELD, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

55% of consumers understand they need to do more to protect their personal data; but 59% are bothered by temporary inconveniences of advanced security measures

Only 45% of consumers have received formal cybersecurity training from their employer

According to the 2019 Cybersecurity Awareness Insights Study released today by Fiserv, most Americans consider themselves at least somewhat informed of cybersecurity threats, yet many fall short at proactively protecting their personal data. Despite this lack of action, more than half (55%) of American consumers understand they need to do more to protect their data, presenting significant opportunity for businesses to reinforce best practices.

Conducted in the summer of 2019 and originally commissioned by First Data, now Fiserv, the study gathered insights from 1,005 Americans ages 18 to 73. The study explores how aware American consumers are of online privacy and security risks, and how they behave when it comes to protecting themselves from cyber threats.

“While cybercrime continues to grab headlines, our study shows that many Americans have not taken action to protect themselves, and the majority say they are bothered by temporary inconveniences brought about by advanced security measures,” said Jay Ablian, Head of Merchant Security and Fraud Solutions, Fiserv. “There is a clear opportunity for businesses to educate consumers and employees to help them understand both the potential impact of inaction and how security measures are designed to protect them.”

Consumer Awareness

The more consumers know, the better they’re able to protect their personal information online. According to the 2019 Cybersecurity Awareness Insights Study, 75% of consumers consider themselves at least somewhat informed of cybersecurity threats. In addition, 55% of respondents understand they should do more to beef up their online security – especially when using social media, online banking, or online shopping.

Despite this, more than half of consumers can be classified as ambivalent, in denial, or oblivious to cybersecurity risks, with only 6% currently taking the steps needed to proactively protect themselves.

Consumer inaction may be driven by perceived inconveniences. To that end, 59% of consumers report they are bothered by temporary inconveniences brought about by advanced security measures that help ensure higher levels of protection.

Consumer Behavior and Data Protection

Although many consumers consider extra cybersecurity precautions a hassle, they are taking some steps to protect themselves. According to the study, dodging inbound phishing attempts is a strong suit of consumers, but additional vigilance around password security is needed:

  • The top measure consumers take to protect themselves is refusing to click email links or open attachments from people they don’t know, cited by 61% of consumers
  • On the other hand, changing passwords is a cybersecurity step 42% of consumers take only if they are required to
  • Of consumers surveyed, 33% have a go-to password they modify slightly to meet password requirements, and 20% use names of significant people, places or pets. Neither of these methods is considered a best practice.

Cybersecurity Awareness at Work

Consumers often look to their employer to provide cybersecurity training, but aren’t always getting the support they expect. Fifty-eight percent of consumers said their employer sends regular cybersecurity updates, and 45% said their employer offers formal cybersecurity training. Of consumers who aren’t provided cybersecurity training, only 9% said their employer has a plan in place to do so.

Employers have a vested interest in cybersecurity awareness, as educated employees can secure their own information and that of the business. Best practices for employers launching their own cybersecurity training include:

  • Emphasize education at work Ongoing education about new cybersecurity threats equips employees to recognize them and understand potential implications
  • Encourage lockdown at home – Employees can secure their home networks, starting with changing all default passwords – especially for internet routers. Those with families can teach children about the dangers of cybercrime
  • Keep information out of the public eye – Whether on personal or business computers, covering up screens when entering passwords and credentials in public areas helps keep information safe.

Advanced #threats and #insider security #threats top #enterprises’ #cybersecurity #concerns, finds #Alert #Logic survey

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Alert Logic, a Security-as-a-Service provider for the cloud, has announced the results of a survey conducted with 400 UK cybersecurity professionals to better understand the evolving cyber threat landscape UK companies face.

The survey found that respondents’ confidence in their organisations’ overall cybersecurity posture is moderate to high, with only a fifth (21%) indicating they are not at all, or only slightly, confident in their organisation’s security posture.

When asked about the top challenges facing their cybersecurity teams, respondents cited detection of advanced threats (62%) and detection and/or mitigation of insider threats (48%) as the two top security challenges. Furthermore, 41% lacked advanced security staff to oversee cyber threat management and nearly a third (27%) lacked confidence in their automation tools catching all cyber threats.

“Advanced cyber threats present the most arduous task for cybersecurity professionals, and the survey results bear this out,” said Oliver Pinson-Roxburgh, EMEA director at Alert Logic. “Cyber attacks are increasingly difficult to detect, as the security threats presented by malicious actors become increasingly bold and sophisticated, particularly when attacking web applications.”

Lack of budget (51%), skilled personnel (49%) and lack of security awareness amongst employees (49%) weighed in as the most significant obstacles facing cybersecurity teams, inhibiting their organisations from adequately defending against cyber threats. In addition, when asked about the business impact of security incidents, system downtime was highlighted as having the biggest impact.

Interestingly, revenue impact was only cited as a relatively minor factor (16%), suggesting that either security teams have evolved their maturity to effectively manage risk or lack full visibility into the downstream business impact of security incidents.

Respondents were asked about the likelihood of their organisation being compromised by a successful cyber attack in the next 12 months, compared to last year. Here, the survey found a remarkably even distribution of expectations. Roughly one third (32%) expected that a compromise was likely, while a slightly smaller number (29%) felt that a compromise was less likely.

“Lack of cybersecurity awareness and budget create a strain on an organisation’s ability to combat advanced cyber threats,” said Pinson-Roxburgh. “Organisations must foster an inclusive security culture, and consider security service models if they don’t have the budget for in-house expert security staff; otherwise organisations will continue to expose their IT infrastructure and their sensitive data to risks.”
