Your company’s employees can support or undermine the foundation of your data security plan. They are the most likely to be targeted and the easiest to leverage into a valuable asset. We are all overwhelmed by security threats and proactively taking action can be daunting. At home, your employees might not see the need to install anti-virus software, use encryption, or set-up a secure Wi-Fi network. At work, these same employees assume the information technology department will just fix it.

The most significant threat to data security is employees because they have too little working knowledge. Empowering your employees to make their online experiences safer will pay dividends for your company’s data security strategy. A change only happens if they learn and retain information. This means daylong training and large manuals do not have the focus to be effective. So, start small with an easy to understand concept that carries into their personal life.
