Regular, ongoing cybersecurity trainings are often an overlooked component of an organization’s overall cybersecurity strategy. Your team plays a key role in defending your business, as they are often the last line of defense. In today’s dangerous cybersecurity climate, it’s important to ensure your team understands your unique cybersecurity risks and feels empowered to respond appropriately.
Consider these alarming statistics:
- 88% of data breaches are caused by human error. (Stanford Research)
- 80% of data breaches are linked to weak passwords. (Verizon)
- Even after experiencing a data breach, only 53% of IT security professionals say their organizations changed how passwords or accounts were managed. (Yubico and Ponemon Institute)
