Enabling CyberSecurity Awareness at Workplaces

The SecurityAdvisor blog advises on how “Human Behavior Creates a Cyberculture,” hopefully a safe one. Note the methods used by computer intruders to endanger workplaces and how to counter them.

“Businesses frequently skip over the fundamentals. This causes a lot of uncertainty among personnel, leading to security breaches that could have been easily prevented. For example, enforcing a strong password policy can make a significant difference. Having standard password regulations gives an additional layer of security, making it more difficult for hackers to gain access to your system.

“It’s common for employees to think of IT and security departments as teams they only interact with when something goes wrong. In order to foster a culture, it’s imperative that all departments have open lines of communication. Employees should feel comfortable approaching the security department to report something or to respond constructively when mistakes are made. Workers should view their security team and senior executives as a resource for assistance and be encouraged to speak up if something suspicious is discovered.”

Finally, “One of the true challenges that organizations face is their inability to identify the bad actors within their organizations. If a business can determine who is responsible for these incidents, they are well on their way to developing a stronger cyber-immune culture….

“SecurityAdvisor delivers a unique approach to building a cyber-secure culture. By delivering real-time and on-the-spot micro-nudges to its users. This unique technology gives personalized and individual coaching in real-time to ‘at-risk’ workers. Teaching employees how to spot and remediate cyberattacks assists in better understanding the human behavior of their security posture and creates stronger cyberculture.”

Looks like an outfit worth spending some time with.
