Transforming HUMANS from the ‘weakest link’…
Employees have long been viewed as the ‘weakest link’ in a business’s cyber security chain and, with human error still being the number one cause of data breaches, that unwanted crown has rightly been fixed for quite some time.
Even with organizations allocating more time and money towards tackling human cyber risk, employee-related security incidents continued to plague businesses.
But why was that? Simply put, many businesses just aren’t doing enough to combat evolving threats. With cybercriminals using more advanced techniques to exploit humans, the traditional route of once-per-year security awareness training just isn’t enough to protect today’s businesses from the loss of sensitive information, reputational damage, and financial repercussions.
Even more, humans are human! Mistakes are going to happen, but hackers learn to take advantage of those mistakes and human tendencies for malicious gain…
So…what can we do?
Your employees don’t have to be your weakest link - they’re your first line of defense against cybercrime.
