In recent years, Cyber Security has become one of the hot topics circulating among businesses and individuals.
In Singapore, the authorities have also been sharing news and tips to spread awareness on the red flags to look out for, to avoid becoming the next victim of a cyber attack. The Singapore Police Force (SPF) had also released an advisory on business impersonation emails in view of the increasing phishing cases reported since the start of the pandemic. Any form of these cyberattacks will be destructive, especially for businesses.

Cybercriminals have their own creative methods to attract these unwary users to fall into their traps, which is why it is crucial for businesses to look into their email security and educate the employees on cyber awareness. The business owners can install all sorts of security ‘gates’ to secure the business, but should not overlook providing sufficient knowledge to employees to ensure the safety of your cyber workspace.
Employees are the company’s ‘First-Line of Cyber Defenses’. Ensuring that the employees are trained with cyber essential knowledge, would greatly reduce the risk of compromising the cyber security for the business/ organization, and allow them to spot and report any suspicious activities before it becomes inevitable.
