The importance of cyber security awareness
In today’s operating environment, awareness of cyber security is of utmost importance. Outokumpu is always looking to improve not only the technologies we use but also our ways of working on cyber security.
As the world is becoming more and more digitalized, the threat-landscape is ever evolving, and unfortunately many companies have already fallen victim to different cyber-attacks. We all need to be aware of the threats of the digital world as anyone can be targeted, from big corporations to individual people.
It is especially important to keep aware of different social engineering attacks such as phishing. The reason why these attacks have become so popular among criminals is that they are relatively easy and cheap to make and the monetary gain for the criminal can grow exponentially.
To mitigate the cyber risks, Outokumpu wants to emphasize that only pre-approved processes are to be used when doing business with us.
