Information security staff awareness solutions
Human error remains the leading cause of data breaches – and these breaches cause organisations a great deal of financial and reputational damage.
When it comes to improving your organisation’s ability to guard against cyber threats, the best defensive strategy is creating a cyber security culture in the workplace.
GDPR staff awareness
Staff awareness should be a major concern for organisations looking to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Without an effective staff awareness programme, your organisation runs the risk of breaching the Regulation, which can have serious consequences.
Are your staff aware of the Regulation? Do your staff know what changes the GDPR brought into effect and how these changes will affect the way they work?
If not, it’s time to start developing a cyber security culture within your organisation.
How to create a cyber security culture
Start from the top
For your business to implement a robust security programme, it’s no good relying on the IT department alone – everyone from senior management down needs to be on board.
Make cyber security everyone’s responsibility
Your cyber security strategy is only as strong as your weakest link. Organisations need to make sure that every employee is aware of the potential threats they face, whether it’s a phishing email, sharing passwords or using an insecure network.
Reward and recognise
Recognising success is key to making employees feel valued. When an employee spots an intrusion attempt and notifies IT right away, praise them through a public employee gathering or all-staff email.
Make security fun and engaging
Traditional training can often be boring. Organisations must engage staff, which means going beyond PowerPoint presentations and tick-box exercises.
Invest in a comprehensive information security staff awareness programme
Training, tools and thought-provoking activities can make your staff aware of the cyber risks they face every day and suggest actions and procedures to minimise those risks.
