Awareness is key to fighting cybercrime in recruitment

(1 minute to read)

There has been a 33% increase in the cost of cybercrimes across all sectors since 2016, with ‘human-enabled insider threats’ now accounting for more than 90% of all incidents.

Cyber security is one of the top five risks for recruitment firms in the coming year, according to latest findings from Alexander Mann Solutions.

The advice given by the talent management consultancy for tackling this threat is to concentrate on comprehensive training and development strategies.

This guidance comes following reports that there has been a 33% increase in the cost of cybercrimes across all sectors over the last three years.

Paul Watters, Global Head of Compliance at Alexander Mann Solutions, commented, “The recent boom in digital adoption and technological innovation means that opportunities to infiltrate company systems and data are increasing. Given the nature of our sector, and the volume of candidate information processed, it is crucial that we ensure that this data is well protected.

“However, while technology, of course, plays a significant role in defending against cyber-attacks, staff training and development is crucial to success and education is key to preventing such occurrences.

“There’s no doubt that the world of global talent acquisition and management is becoming increasingly complex and cyber-threats are just one of a number of risks that companies delivering in this space face. However, with strong strategies in place, businesses can improve their organisational health while protecting objectives, reputation and revenues.”
