Shared Breakfast: Cybersecurity is Everybody's job

10 October 2019, 09:30 - 10:30

October is the National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which is a collaborative effort between the government and the industry to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. It is a national effort to help everyone stay protected whenever and however you connect.

As we all know by now, the human factor is crucial to enterprise security. Cyber attacks routinely exploit vulnerable human behaviors to gain entry, since organizations must trust their own people—or at least some of them—with access to critical systems.

Humans make decisions on risk tradeoffs, funding for security programs, adherence to policies, and hiring, factors which impact the organization’s security posture in many ways. From the newest intern to the chief executive, all members hold the power to harm, or to help, the security of sensitive data and essential systems. Everyone in the organization needs to know their role in protecting the company’s intellectual property, its mission, customers, employees, and the public.
