Train, train, and train again.
A recent study published by security firm Mimecast states 60% of cyberattacks are spread by the organization’s own employees. We’ve known for a very long time we the people are the weakest link in the security chain. One of the best ways to confront this problem is with regular cybersecurity awareness training for your workforce. It’s truly not enough to engage them in training just once a year. If security is your responsibility in your organization, then you should be on a constant quest for short, quality, and easily digestible security content for your staff. Our friends at the FBI have a series of just that, short videos that are valuable reminders. The clips themselves were created to help political campaigns, but their content and topics are germane for everyone.
Pass this link or this email forward to your employees and let’s see if we can make a dent in that abysmal 60% failure rate.
Be safe. Be well.
