Is Everyone's Responsibility
Over 91% of cyber hacks begin with a team member?
Almost every month or quarter, you hear a story about a "hacker" costing a corporation millions of dollars through a cyber security breach. Are all of these events actually "cyber hacks"? No. It was a team member who opened a Word Document or clicked an Internet Link attached to a disguised email. Team member awareness is a crucial element in your organization's safe computing.
Team members see cyber security as something management is responsible for.
Safety Climate vs. Safety Culture, are both necessary?
Safety Climate features all visible aspects of your organization's cyber security. Your climate may include; anti-malware screenings, anti-virus software, file encryptions, firewalls, and password complexities. Safety Culture structures your organization's cyber security philosophy. Developing an effective culture requires consistent training and messaging, modeled by leadership behavior. Both the cultivation of a Safety Climate and Safety Culture are necessary for your organization's safe computing.
Executive team attitude towards
cyber security sets a foundational example.
Is auditing, testing, and workspace signage, too much?
Technology and compliance regulations are constantly changing; your organization may require new or additional protection. Having your IT Manager or Technology Firm conduct routine audits of your cyber security is a responsible practice. Integrating a testing platform, Security Awareness Programs, will also compliment your security layers. These platforms test and track the click habits of team members to provide actionable data. Externally, the posting of workspace signage will help reinforce your organization's safe computing.
