Businesses should employ a multi-facetted strategy to protect themselves from cyber threats. This should include both the implementation of different technologies as well as consideration for the human factor.
Your employees are your business’s greatest assets, but they can also be your greatest risks when it comes to cyber security. Your employees play a critical role in maintaining the security of your IT environment.
The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) reported that between January 2020 and June 2020, 1/3 of data beaches were a result of human error.
Ensuring your employees are educated on the latest cyber threats, how to identify them and most importantly the need to report any suspicious activity to IT is paramount to maintaining the security of your overall network.
