In today’s increasingly digital world, the spread of misinformation can pose a substantial business risk. This is especially true for organizations in industries where strict compliance and data security standards are required.
Companies are often the target of calculated disinformation campaigns, deep fake attacks (where anonymous people pose as high-ranking leaders within the company), email and text scam attempts, and more. It has never been more important for organizations to provide their workforce with a secure and reliable employee hub.
Continue reading to learn how a secure employee hub can help maintain organizational security and prevent the spread of misinformation.
Combat Phishing Attempts With A Secure Employee Hub
As ultra-realistic deep fakes become more affordable, spam and phishing attacks will grow more sophisticated. Employees who depend heavily on emails and text messages for work-related communications are at greater risk. This is especially true for frontline employees who already have limited interaction with senior leadership/management.
The reality of the situation is that unless you’re proactively equipping and training your employees with the tools they need to avoid these attacks, it will be a continuing problem.
There are two strategies you can use to actively combat phishing attacks: phishing awareness training programs, and a reliable employee hub.
Phishing awareness training programs play a critical role in mitigating the potential of data breaches within an organization. These programs can help educate employees on the tactics and techniques that cybercriminals use to trick people. This will make it easier to identify potential phishing attempts, deep fake attacks, etc. when they occur.
Below are a few of the most popular phishing/security awareness training programs:
It’s worth noting that while security awareness training programs are helpful and provide a great foundation for each employee, you’ll always be fighting an uphill battle. People could ignore the training or continuously have to be re-trained to combat the new phishing approaches that are always coming about.
A Reliable Employee Hub serves as a safe space where employees can share and access information, promoting trust and transparency within the organization. By moving communication from text messages/email chains to a secure and centralized employee portal, you can significantly reduce the risk of phishing attacks. Employees will know communication and collaboration occur within the hub, and any attempts or messages they receive outside of that could be potential misinformation/scams.
Manage The Flow Of Information & Communication
We’ve talked about how a reliable employee hub can help combat external phishing attempts. It is also worth noting that with an employee hub at the core of all business communications, you can effectively manage the flow of information and reduce the risk of employees being fooled by misinformation campaigns.
With the majority of employee communication happening within a secure portal, you can limit external communication to essential personnel and implement strict verification processes. By integrating advanced AI technologies into your employee hub, you can detect and flag potential misinformation faster.
By implementing an employee hub, your organization can create a culture of critical thinking, urging employees to be alert and question the authenticity of information from external sources. In addition to regular training and awareness sessions to prevent phishing attacks, encourage employees to double-check any external information/communications they receive.
Leverage A Reliable Employee Hub
Generative AI promises to revolutionize digital workplaces, especially in combating the growing threat of deep fakes in emails and text communications. However, the wider issue of misinformation affecting companies cannot be ignored.
By setting up a secure employee hub, your organization can protect its integrity, fend off misinformation campaigns, and confidently navigate this intricate landscape. Taking proactive measures and investing in state-of-the-art technologies are vital to staying ahead in the fight against misinformation.
When collaboration and communication occur within a central platform, you can trust that the information being distributed is accurate and that the people you collaborate with are who they say they are. For organizations that reside in industries with strict compliance regulations (such as Healthcare, Government, Financial Services, etc.), a secure employee hub is all but a requirement to ensure that your employees are adhering to the standards that need to be met.
