Ever wonder why we have so many cyber attacks despite so many IT personnel in our companies? No one is perfect, we all make mistakes. Without IT personnel and consultants, there would be even more issues. Here are 5 of the most common IT Department mistakes to look out for.

Overconfidence
The greatest downfall for any IT personnel is to believe that nothing can ever go wrong. This overconfident attitude leads to a lack of preparedness prior to and during a cyber attack.

Skipping Required Updates
Crucial software and tools for cybersecurity require regular updates by IT personnel. Lack of this can open up back door access to vital company data, which can be quite costly.

Multitasking
Sometimes IT personnel believe they can multitask without a problem. However, multitasking and understaffing often results in mistakes and oversights.

Rapid Change
Especially in technology and cybersecurity, information and rules change at a rapid rate, sometimes it is difficult to keep up with current events and information.

Blame game
Sometimes it’s easier to blame others for internal red tape, mistakes or lack of preparation. In this case, it’s good to have a 2nd set of eyes or unbiased consultant’s opinion to work together.
