Now is an excellent time to institute and improve the security training of your employees.
The seemingly nonstop rash of hacking attacks has made the general public much more aware of the potential damage caused by cyberattacks, not just to companies but to individuals as well.
Ferry systems, meat processors, medical facilities and pipelines have all been hacked in recent weeks, bringing home to people the value of proper security principles.
Gas prices jump, ferries slow, medical procedures stall, meat prices rise.
Hacking hits home
One approach: Show your employees how security practices at work can also be adapted to protect themselves, their families, their privacy and their assets.
Explain to employees that cyberattacks hurt them as well as businesses. Many businesses are so crippled by hackers that they lose large amounts of money and sometimes go out of business, costing jobs.
