We talk extensively about the impact of inbound cybersecurity attacks and the devastation they can cause, but what about outbound data loss? According to an IBM study, human error is the leading cause of 95% of cybersecurity breaches. That means 19 in 20 breaches could be avoided entirely if not for a person introducing risk either through human error, deliberately breaking security protocol, or malicious behavior.

One of the most challenging elements of cybersecurity is knowing what’s to come. While none of us have an IT crystal ball (unfortunately), we can make educated guesses based on the evidence around us. One thing that is for sure, though, is that cybercriminals are more of a threat than ever. According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Report from last year, a record 847,376 cybercrime complaints were reported by the public in 2021 – a 7% rise from the previous year.
