The danger of Javascript files

More and more often Javascript files are used by hackers to hack employees of healthcare institutions. These are files with the extension js and jse. The files are presented as a download in the form of a zipped file. Once hacked, patient systems are taken offline and a large amount has to be paid to the hackers to get them back online. Such hacks are fairly easy to prevent, system management should ensure that javascript files are not automatically started when clicked by the employee. Another option is to disable ‘Windows Script Host’.

Digital security remains a concern

The 2022 Voice of the CISO report shows that 48% of the interviewed CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers) believe that their company is at risk of being hacked. Last year, 64% of the CISOs interviewed were afraid of this. However, feeling prepared is quite different from being really prepared. More than half of the CISOs interviewed consider the potential for human error to be the greatest risk to organizations’ cybersecurity. Bodyguard helps you to protect your employees against this.

Companies see cyber issues, but underestimate the risks

PwC research shows that cybersecurity risks were seen as the number 1 business risk for business leaders. Yet the same PwC research shows that the focus for many organizations (83%) continues to be on growing the company. In this context, working from home has taken off. 70% of organizations are looking at possibilities to work remotely permanently. This is good for growth, but poses a greater cyber risk. Wrong behavior by an employee can cost a company the head. Bodyguard helps you to protect your employees against this.
