Your employees are your greatest asset and your greatest security risk. According to a recent study, 84 percent of managers identify employee negligence as their biggest information security threat.
Enforcing a cybersecurity awareness training program is a necessary step to securing your company data. But motivating your entire organization to care about cybersecurity and follow the rules is no easy feat.
Cybersecurity awareness training should be a requirement for:
- Board of directors
- Major shareholders
- Partners in the supply chain
- Governance, risk and compliance professionals
- Product manufacturing and engineering
- Internal and external legal counsel
- Users with data access
- All employees
Include security behavior training to help employees build secure behaviors from day one. In addition, have regular checkins to reinforce training in order to turn behavior into a natural reflex.
