“Your data can be hiding behind all the routers, firewalls, Intrusion Detection and Prevention systems in the world… and all a hacker needs to do is find one unaware employee to make all that security useless.”- Bill White, CIO, American Compliance Systems (ACS)
Most IT professionals agree that an IT Security Plan– or your network –is only as strong as its weakest link. More often than not, that weakest link is your company’s employees. Whether it happened because of Susan leaving passwords on Post-It Notes, or John opening the ubiquitous phishing email in his inbox, a breach can usually be traced back to human error. “A strong IT Security Plan begins and ends with your employees”, says ACS’ White.
So what is your best defense? A well-trained, highly aware staff!
According to White, “The key is an effective training program. Your employees need to be made aware through an engaging, up-to-date training program that uses familiar examples and doesn’t end when they walk out of the classroom.” In other words, your training program needs to be current, customized and ongoing.
