Is Your Business Security Fit For Purpose?

If you’ve ever opened an email, chances are you’ll have seen one with an attachment. Perhaps it’s an invoice or an amusing link from a friend.

Today, one in every 100 emails is a phishing email – up 65% since 2018. Unfortunately, many of us cannot even detect a phishing email.

Employees can pose the greatest risk to your business. It could be poor training and awareness or a disgruntled member of staff or workforce.


Whether it’s deliberate or accidental, an organisation must take its responsibility seriously or face financial, reputational damage and or both


However, the problem is not just on the shop floor. The boardroom and senior management can also be the weakest link!

NexusProtect ran a global phishing exercise and:

  1. Identified that 74% of the organisations’ executives opened the phishing emails
  2. Of that 74%, 92% had not completed the organisation’s security awareness course


Finding Business Security Risks

Whether it’s a primary school, a manufacturing plant, or logistics operation or a government contract, the most effective approach to security is one that encompasses all departments.

In most companies, the IT teams sit on one side and the other departments sit on another. This creates vulnerabilities. With our approach, we identify all risks, from HR to marketing to operations.


In most cases, business security breaches are a result of a human error, therefore the interaction between an organisation’s internal functions and its employees is critical


With data breaches, 80 to 90% are caused by people – mostly accidental.

People can open the back door unknowingly to those who may want to cause harm to your organisation.
