Cybercrime has been hitting cyber for some time now. A major threat to business is according to a survey that proves that already 43% of businesses have been affected in some way. The survey also reports that the world cost has been recorded so far and the forecast for 2021 is 6 trillions of dollars.
This is something that is surely worrying and must continue to concern them project managers of these businesses. For most project managers, cybercrime was not a primary goal or key task. Everyone, except for the IT PMs (who were already informed about it), is now urged to protect the subject of their work.
Because they do not have to be security professionals, project managers must at least know their meaning securityin order to move towards their goals.
To understand security, you first need to understand the dangers of cybercrime. What are the hackers' demands for? In essence, they want to steal the data and personal and business information. These can then be moved to other hackers or used to mislead imitated personalities of others.
The cybercrime mobilization can only be increased if security is actively discussed by project managers, to those who have a place in the project and refers to each level of preparation and execution of the project. It needs to be included orally, but mainly in writing, in any information and project documentation.
To make significant changes to how the team is approaching digital security, it is necessary to move on to all levels. If necessary, gather all the staff together and explain why changing passwords is necessary so often or to identify different levels of document privacy.
It is true that most of the problems created by these attacks can be avoided. The hackers, first look for the easiest choice, such as unsafe networks, lack of encryption of messages and passwords or loose firewall. Since project managers do the necessary steps to enhance security, at least at these basic levels, the risk is greatly reduced.
