When it comes to cybersecurity, continually updating your employees with the latest security awareness education is one of the most important things you can do. According to an article discussed in a LBMC Information Security podcast, human-error is cited as the most common reason for cyber intrusion and data compromise. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that the security awareness training market will grow from $1 billion in 2014 to $10 billion by 2027.
While security awareness education has become an industry standard for maintaining compliance, the purpose of implementing a strong, thorough security awareness program is not to simply satisfy compliance criteria. The best security system in the world is still vulnerable if employees don’t understand their roles and responsibilities in safeguarding sensitive data and protecting company resources.
