Establishing Cybersecurity Culture in Today's Workplace

Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes every employee to keep an organization safe. Whilst security teams draft up cloud security solutions and invest in threat detection technology, this won’t prevent employees from being coaxed into buying hundreds of dollars worth of gift cards that their boss requested from a supposed personal email.

With Verizon's 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report finding that 96% of phishing attacks arrive by emails, employees need to be aware of basic cybersecurity best practices in daily life to help promote an active cybersecurity culture within the organization. Creating a cybersecurity culture in the workplace is an ongoing goal that improves not only the organization’s security posture but also employee communication and teamwork.

Along with discussing how cybersecurity teams can collaborate with employees through user awareness training to establish and promote cybersecurity policies and guidelines, this episode of CISO Insights will cover:

  • What it means to create a culture of cybersecurity in the workplace
  • Best practices to keep in mind when creating and managing cybersecurity culture in the workplace
  • Incorporating user awareness training and cyber hygiene in daily workday whilst overcoming employee reluctance against mandatory security training
