A sensitised employee is the biggest hurdle
Companies and authorities have taken many technical measures to protect themselves from the dangers of our networked world. However, even the best protection technology will not function if employees circumvent it intentionally or unintentionally. But why? It's because those involved lack sensibility or awareness.
- Security measures are not understood or they are perceived as annoying and then bypassed
- Digital carelessness
- Reliance on technical protection mechanisms
- Denial of responsibility with regard to information security
- Lack of knowledge of those involved
Give your employees the tools they need to identify and respond to potentially security-critical situations.
