Employees have always posed a threat to business, and can be one of the weakest links in terms of protecting security.
According to the 2016 Insider Threat Spotlight Report, 74% of organisations feel vulnerable to insider threats, and only 42% have the appropriate controls in place to prevent such an attack. 56% of security professionals say that insider threats have become more frequent in the past 12 months and over 75% of organisations estimate that insider breach remediation costs could reach $500,000 (£403,000).
Educating your staff about the security risks they could face (tailgating, phishing emails, etc.) and the damage they could cause themselves (sharing passwords, distributing unencrypted customer data, etc.) could significantly reduce your insider threat.
How to strengthen your staff awareness programme
Staff awareness training is often the best way to keep your employees informed, but having supporting reading material to hand can also help improve the learning process.
Not only does this add credibility and gravitas to your staff training, it also demonstrates your commitment to guidance from leading industry experts.
Having market-leading books to hand for your employees to draw upon, can help you to create a culture of security within your workplace.
