Strengthen the weakest links in the information security chain.
Strong security defenses involve interplay between technologies, processes and people; but the strongest defensive mechanisms can be effectively compromised by an exploit of the human element. Many case studies of security breaches demonstrate how people without appropriate security awareness training are the weakest link in the security chain.
The damage and cost of a cybersecurity breach can be very substantial. An annual study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute, reveals that the average cost of a data breach in 2018 was $3.86 million globally. In the United States the problem is even more acute with an average cost of $7.35 million in 2017, a 5% increase compared to the previous year.
Cybersecurity breach costs can include:
- Direct financial loss
- Loss of customers
- Breached client records, identity repair, and credit monitoring
- Notification and public relations costs
- Legal fees and regulatory fines
- Cleanup costs and business disruption
The purpose of security awareness training is to give direction on how to protect corporate information and assets in such a way that they are readily available to legitimate users. An investment in security awareness training can be recovered many times over by preventing even one serious security breach. The benefits of this offering include:
