Aligning Cybersecurity with Workplace Culture

We are all familiar with the concept of a workplace culture but that concept is ever-evolving. Today, it means including cybersecurity in that vein. Align Cybersecurity has broken down how this can be done.

CREATE A SECURITY CULTURE FOR EVERYONE

Cybersecurity is not exclusive to the "tech" people. Everyone should know some basics at the very least. Hold a training (however brief) to teach people things like not carelessly clicking on links in emails or how to send information securely.

IMPLEMENT CYBERSECURITY POLICIES

This will get everyone on the same page and is something that should be kept up to date.

ENCOURAGE EMPLOYEES TO REPORT INCIDENTS

Create an open line of communication to your IT department to make it easy for employees to do this. Consider this: If one person receives a suspicious phishing email and reports it, an immediate mass communication could prevent a breach as they are more than likely not the only person who received such an email.

CELEBRATE SUCCESS

No matter how small! This will encourage people to be more mindful when it comes to cybersecurity. Whether it be reporting the suspicious email or completing a cybersecurity training, rewards can help the cause!
