Instill a 'Security-First' Mindset Into Culture and Processes
One look at today’s headlines provides this sobering reminder for executives and security officers: cyberattacks have skyrocketed, data breaches are a weekly occurrence, and the need for cybersecurity awareness has never been greater.
A security-first mindset is simply an organizational commitment to securing and safeguarding corporate and customer data. It means prioritizing data security to such a degree that your commitment is clearly evident throughout your policies and processes--and more importantly, in the attitudes, behaviors and actions of your employees.
Education Begins with Awareness
We emphasize behavior because what employees do--or don’t do--when handling sensitive data or reacting to a potential breach, will directly determine whether you suffer financial, reputational and regulatory consequence--or avoid them.
Employees who know and understand potential threats become security assets instead of liabilities--partners in protecting your company, its customers and reputation. The bottom line is that organizations that invest in teaching employees to safely handle data and identify cybersecurity threats before they become breaches fare much better in today’s threat environment than those who don’t.
