Cybersecurity awareness, SETA, Security policy compliance
Ransomware attacks and data breaches are here to stay. Successful attacks stem from human errors within organizations. Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) must garner the support of everyone, especially leadership to counter the attacks. Arsenal for organizations starts with cybersecurity awareness training and the existence of cybersecurity policies. Board of Director and Executive-level cybersecurity awareness are pivotal toward organization-wide awareness of the severity and impact of cyber-attacks. Organization resources are scarce, nevertheless, any organization investments in cybersecurity awareness training garner definite returns. Organization cybersecurity is a continuous activity. Everyone in the organization must share this critical function to mitigate information security attacks. Human capital in organizations can become effective tool to reduce vulnerabilities.
