Alongside the intricate world of cybersecurity, the myths and misconceptions regarding the same are growing continually as well. As most people tend to ignore the details, they usually believe in these fallacies and end up prejudicing everything. Thus, in this write-up, we are going to bust a few myths.
Myth: Only the IT team of an organization is responsible for cybersecurity breaches.
Reality: It is, indeed, pretty accurate that the IT professionals of a company generally set up and implement a new cybersecurity infrastructure. However, it is almost impossible for them to stay on guard all the time and protect the network environment. A well-planned cyberattack can occur from almost anywhere at any time (around 1,470 breaches occurred in the year of 2019). So, in reality, almost anyone in the corporation can be responsible for cyber assault. Due to this reason, each and every employee needs to be wary before opening any e-mail from an unknown source. Furthermore, they should avoid clicking on unidentified links as well. Besides, the head of the organization will also need to use a User Behavior Analytics tool in their system. It, in turn, will help him or her to keep an eye on their employees and identify any suspicious behaviour.
