In his Headline Finance column, the Chairman explains some common online risks like password hacking and phishing and their consequences.
Common-sense measures like using unique and complex passwords can eliminate much of the risk. Spurious emails which can trick the receiver into revealing passwords or other important information by replying or clicking on a false link can be avoided by simply verifying the sender with a quick phone call before taking any action.
Businesses and organizations must take the initiative to defeat hackers from top to down. The Chairman lists such countermeasures as regularly updating antivirus software and conducting regular employee training as just two basic measures. Citing his own extensive experience in the events industry, he also emphasises how providing effective third-party data security is vital to gain customer trust and maintain a reputable company image.
