In a Service Desk Institute (SDI) research it is revealed, that the service desk will often be the entry point for a deceptive attack.
As the SDI report says:
“As to the reality of the risks of unauthorised access to end-user data, Figure 9 shows that 27% of respondents stated that their organisation had identified unauthorised access attempts. Although, this might be just the tip of the iceberg because, ignoring the 32% that responded with either “Don’t know” or “Unable to answer”, how many of the 42% who stated that their organisation hadn’t identified any unauthorised access attempts (in the last 12 months) were either not:
- Monitoring for unauthorised access attempts
- Suitably equipped to identify unauthorised access attempts.
The point being that, just because no attempts were identified, it doesn’t mean that none were attempted or even successful.”
