Your challenge: making sure your team is knowledgeable about the latest cyber threats.
If your personnel do not know or understand how to maintain the confidentiality of information, or how to protect your security systems, you increase the risk of your organisation becoming the target of an attack. Often your best line of defence is to raise awareness by providing basic cyber security training for everyone who interacts with networks, systems and information.
Did you know?
Among companies that have experienced data breaches, internal actors were responsible for 43% of data loss, half of which were intentional and half accidental (McAfee, Grand Theft Data).
There is a severe shortage of cyber security talent globally: there were 1 million cyber security job openings in 2016, and this number is expected to rise to 1.5 million by 2019 (UK House of Lords Digital Skills Committee).
50% of companies now believe security training and awareness for both new and current employees is a priority (Dell, Protecting the organization against the unknown – A new generation of threats).

Optimise your cyber security workforce by aligning processes, people and technology
Having an up-to-date understanding of current standards/regulations, roles and procedures needed to mitigate risk is essential for any organisation to function effectively in a cyber security environment.
Every organisation needs specialists to plan and execute the more complex activities required to deliver an effective cyber security strategy. Poorly trained personnel may mean inadequate risk management and the application of cyber security controls that simply do not work.
Technology is crucial when it comes to cyber security. By identifying the cyber risks that your organisation faces, you can then start to look at what controls to put in place, and what technologies you’ll need to do this.
