Staff Awareness: The critical component of information security

Effective information security management is a challenge for any organisation no matter how large or small, no matter what industry or sector. If you take the SME who has a single location and a handful of staff and compare them with a large multi-national corporation that has offices across the world with thousands of staff, you would conclude that that the challenges faced by each organisation are a million miles apart. And you would be right. However, the one common information security weakness that every organisation has, are its staff.

Improving information security within your organisation, therefore, has to encompass people and processes, as well as technology. Motivating your team and making them more aware of security concerns should be at the heart of your information security strategy. At the same time, the processes you have in place to address information security issues need to be straightforward and properly understood if you want your employees to adhere to them.
