The increasing risk of technology-based fraud is based on the large number of employees who actively use technology. This also increases the risk of cybersecurity with multiple times of traffic. In addition, the business stimulus amounting to trillions of rupiah that is issued to turn the wheels of the economy back is considered to be able to create many loopholes for fraud. Indications suggest that cyber fraud risks will continue to increase in the coming months. Even when entering this new normal phase. Therefore, several steps are needed so that companies can face the threat of the next wave of hacks. Here’s how to avoid technology-based hacking threats:
1. Update main system
There will likely be many changes in business processes to respond quickly to changes in government programs, regulations, stimulus packages, economic factors, and business decisions at the executive level. With the possibility that the current system is no longer relevant to record data related to the new procedure. So, plan to make adjustments or improvisations of the current system so that it can run according to the new process.
2. Create a hack scheme
In times of uncertainty, it is critical to be proactive in identifying new threats. Form a team to evaluate possible hacking schemes and gather intelligence from friends, regulators and partners. Collaborating with the cybersecurity team is also recommended to find various sources of existing threats.
3. Take advantage of unattended detection techniques
While supervised modeling techniques may not become very accurate when behavior changes dramatically, enabling unsupervised methods (automation) such as anomaly detection, network analysis, and systemization of settings can all provide a quick addition of security value.
4. Process automation, alerts can help anti-hacking team
Hack detection is not a set-and-forget process so companies must remain alert to cyber threats that can evolve over time. Process automation, alerts for hibernation and various other methods can help anti-hacking teams deal with the increasing volume of fraud alerts they may encounter.
