Organizations invest significant financial resources in implementing technical security solutions in order to contain, minimize or even eliminate cybersecurity risks. At the same time, they seem to ignore that, for the majority of cases, the greatest risk of exposure to an organization’s information security is not a weakness in their technology infrastructure but rather their own employees’ activity, which may lead to security incidents and vulnerability loopholes.
A pivotal part of ensuring effectiveness of the organization’s cybersecurity program is personnel security awareness, which enables the employees of an organization to gain a solid understanding of security policies, procedures and best practices. It is of vital importance that organizations have a security awareness program in place, because each and every member can be a potential cyberattack victim or an assailant, even involuntarily. It is for this reason that they have to be consistently and adequately trained so they are able to properly identify, fend off and report suspected cyberattacks they come across.
