As a small to mid-sized business you know it’s more important than ever before to protect yourself from a cyberthreat. One way to do that is to provide on-going cybersecurity awareness training and education to your employees, and adopt cybersecurity practices as part of your company culture.
It’s no longer just your IT and security department’s responsibility to keep your organization’s information and systems secure, it’s everyone’s responsibility.
As you offer your employees the ability to work from anywhere, anytime, from any device, the lines between work and home become increasingly blurred, making it even more important to implement cybersecurity awareness training and education within your organization.
Adopting cybersecurity practices and integrating it as part of your organization’s culture, starts with you and your leadership team.
-Participate with your employees during cybersecurity training sessions
-Emphasize the importance of being aware of current and new cybersecurity threats and how to mitigate risks to themselves and your company
-Reinforce the need to actively practice in strong security habits
In addition to training your employees on cybersecurity best practices, your IT and security department must constantly stay up-to-date on the latest security technologies, compliance regulations and ever evolving threats. Hence the need for on-going cybersecurity awareness training for your employees.
The more you emphasize the important of practicing safe cybersecurity, the safer and more secure your organization will become.
