One in three companies has experienced a successful cyberattack in the last year
oSafe , one of the fastestgrowing cybersecurity
S awareness providers worldwide , has published its Human Risk Review 2022 .
A survey by Allianz Insurance also shows that cyberincidents are the number one business risk worldwide . At the RSA Conference 2021 , Chuck Robbins , CEO , Cisco , spoke of US $ 6 trillion in damages
per year . The interface between man and machine remains the number one entry point – more than 85 % of all attacks start with the human factor .
“ With the Human Risk Review 2022 , we want to provide insights into current trends and developments in the European cyberthreat landscape . Our goal is to further raise awareness of this topic – especially for the ‘ human
factor ’ in information security ,” said Dr Niklas Hellemann , Managing Director of SoSafe . “ Employees need more than security guidelines . Employees can be activated as a ‘ human firewall ’ to sustainably reduce the security risk . To achieve this , a security culture must be established in companies that involve people and supports them in identifying cyberthreats and behaving safely .”
The Human Risk Review 2022 helps with this . It gives security managers recommendations for action to strengthen the security culture in companies holistically and sustainably . With the help of SoSafe ’ s ‘ Behavioral Security Model ’, organisations can significantly and effectively minimise human risks based on psychological approaches . SoSafe ’ s data shows that systematic awareness measures reduce risks by up to 90 %.
Symphony Technology Group announces the launch of Skyhigh Security
ymphony Technology Group
( STG ), a leading Menlo
Park-based private equity firm focused on the software , data and analytics sectors , has announced the launch of Skyhigh Security .
The new portfolio company was created to satisfy the growing cloud security requirements for large and small organisations .
Skyhigh Security ’ s approach extends security beyond data access to securing how the data is used . Its data-aware Security Service Edge ( SSE ) is built to meet the needs of the modern workforce with security that follows the data and users wherever they are .
Earlier this year , STG announced it would be splitting McAfee Enterprise into two organisations – Trellix and Skyhigh Security – to better focus on the very distinct markets of Extended Detection and Response ( XDR ) and the SSE .
At that time STG also announced that Gee Rittenhouse , who previously led Cisco ’ s cybersecurity business , would serve as CEO of the SSE business , bringing deep cloud security expertise .
“ With the majority of data in the cloud and users accessing it from everywhere , a new approach to security is needed ,” said Rittenhouse . “ Skyhigh Security has created a comprehensive security platform to secure both data access and data use via unified policies and data awareness .
“ Organisations can now have complete visibility and control and seamlessly monitor and mitigate security risks – achieving lower associated costs , driving greater efficiencies and keeping pace with the speed of innovation .” u
