Read the headlines in almost any newspaper and you will undoubtedly see stories with titles containing phrases like “data breach”, “identity theft”, and “hacker”. From small shops to large fortune 500 companies, reliance on information systems has become an integral part of doing business. Information systems and the networks they are connected to make businesses more efficient and increase worker productivity, but doing so often comes with a cost. Just as businesses need to take the security of valuable physical possessions seriously, so too do they need to consider the security of their digital assets. Credit card numbers, medical records, and other digital assets are often ripe targets for hackers and a lack of security awareness amongst a company’s user base often poses a big risk for businesses. In fact, the employees of a company are more often than not the weak link in an organization’s defenses as hackers will routinely use techniques like phishing and other forms of social engineering to gain access to user credentials or gain a foothold within an organization. A major factor in keeping your business secure is to promote a culture of security awareness amongst all employees and get every employee to understand that security is EVERYONE’s responsibility and not just the responsibility of people with the word security or IT in their job description.
