Training and Awareness
Continuous training and awareness for users about organization’s security is important just like any other measure taken to secure network. It is important to realize that users are the first custodians of network and if they are not well versed with the security safety requirements, it is possible that their actions can create vulnerabilities which can then be exploited by cyber criminals to hurt network. It therefore pays for an organization to educate all their users on the organization’s security matters.
75% of large organisations and nearly a third of small organisations suffered staff-related security breaches in 2015, with 50% of the worst breaches caused by human error, according to the UK government’s 2015 information security breaches survey.
A lot of researches done by various respected bodies have concluded that continuous security education, training and awareness programs for employees significantly reduce network and data breaches, and in the event that there is a breach, the damages incurred will be significantly lower.
