7 TIPS TO ENHANCE CYBERSECURITY
AWARENESS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION
A recent study has shown that the average size of
a data breach has increased 1.8 percent to more
than 24,000 records since 2016. It is now more
important than ever to implement preventative
measures to help mitigate the risk of cyber-attacks and train employees on cybersecurity
best practices. The weakest link is often not
the technology itself, but the users who can
unknowingly cause a security incident through
events such as opening a phishing email, or
allowing a visitor on-site without checking their
access. Due to these risks, organizations must
invest in their employees by teaching them how
to prepare for, prevent, and respond to these risks,
says Blaise Wabo, a Senior Manager at A-LIGN.
