How are your employees the biggest cyber security threat to your business?

Cyber security is one of the most important things to consider in a digital world. The internet is the main gateway to our lives, and keeping it secure is critical for your privacy and financial security. Our professional, personal, and financial lives have all begun to gravitate toward the world of the internet, mobile computing, and electronic media. Unfortunately, due to the prevalence of this phenomenon, organisations are more vulnerable than ever to malicious attacks from hackers, cyber criminals, and other agents of fraud.

Uninformed employees are the biggest vulnerability when it comes to cyber-attacks, and this is why it is important for employees to understand the schemes that cyber criminals employ to exploit this vulnerability. Cyber security awareness is a form of corporate training that aims to educate employees on how to identify and avoid cyber threats such as social engineering scams, phishing, ransomware attacks, and other malware designed to steal intellectual property or personal data. This training also educates employees on how to report cyber-attacks, what they should do in the event of a data breach, and what they should do in the event of an emergency.


No matter what your role in an organization, it's important to understand the risks associated with unsecure digital data storage and transmission.
