Think you’ve got your cyber security covered?
New strains of malware are constantly being discovered. That’s because as businesses of all sizes have stepped up their cyber security software and procedures; hackers have upped their game, too.
The cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving. So, it’s imperative that you have an arsenal of weapons like firewalls, endpoint security, anti-virus software and email encryption to keep your data safe.
But that’s only the start.
If you’re going to stay ahead in the war against cyber criminals, it’s essential that everyone in your business who goes anywhere near a computer or device is on board.
Your IT set up is only ever as strong as your weakest member of staff. And just one well-intentioned but badly trained person can undo all your hard work – and cost you a small fortune – in a matter of minutes.
Promote a culture of cyber security awareness…
But let’s face it, it’s not easy.
Getting everyone in your team to take cyber security seriously can feel like you’re fighting a losing battle. Like any new initiative, there will undoubtedly be some resistance.
Nagging rarely works and adopting a heavy-handed approach like threatening disciplinary action if they fail to comply is unlikely to be received well.
But if your business is going to stay safe from cyber-crime, you need to make sure that everyone – from the interns, up to senior executives and board members – are on the same page when it comes to cyber security.
This month’s guide looks at nine ways to change the way your employees think about cyber security and make it part of your business’s culture.
