One of the questions we get asked most frequently by prospects and clients alike is “as an organization, what is the most effective thing we can do to improve our cybersecurity?”
Imagine their surprise when our answer has nothing to do with software or hardware…
Without a doubt, the single greatest initiative an organization can pursue to fortify its cybersecurity is employee education and training.
Almost always, a cyber attack is initiated within an organization by a very simple action – an employee clicks on something s/he shouldn’t.
We believe it is mission-critical for organizations to teach and advocate safe online behavior to all their employees.
That is why we offer and mandate that all of our clients complete weekly online cybersecurity modules (3-5 minutes/each).
By teaching our clients how to spot and report suspicious activities (and testing them with phishing simulations), we empower them to identify and avoid many of the constantly evolving cyber threats circulating about.
As our moms used to say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure… quiet sage advice in today’s work-from-anywhere environment.
