Increasing Security Awareness at Every Level of Your Organization

If your company makes money and/or is in possession of data or other online assets, you are a target of ransomware threats or cyberattacks, regardless of your size. Most companies face difficulties when it comes to properly educating their employees about the variety of attacks out there, not to mention the various steps of protection they can implement.  Increasing your security awareness needs to happen at every level of an organization in order for it to be effective.

Executive leaders in a business must recognize that a company’s online security is increasingly a reflection of company leadership. If the leadership team is not speaking about security in their leadership meetings or during all-hands discussions, why should they think anyone in their company is?  

CEOs may not be able to explain how an attacker accomplishes identity theft or how a network becomes vulnerable in the first place. However, they need to be able to provide the resources for security initiatives, including strengthening their employees’ security skills.  

Executives must lead with security on the brain. Every company initiative must have a security focus. Everyone in the organization must be onboard with implementing secure solutions. Security training should be frequent and engaging, that is the only way to create habits.  

As incidents of ransomware, phishing attacks, and data breaches increase, you must continue to prioritize your organization’s security.
