Many organizations overlook security awareness as an integral part of their security policies and success in preventing attacks. The fact is that it is your employees who hold the guardianship over your critical assets. By implementing security awareness training you can create the first line of defense against security breaches.
Although employees are conscientious of security requirements, their busy day opens up opportunities to put security on the “back burner”. Without the IT management implementing a strict security awareness training program employees are not as likely to pay attention to authentication best practices. Unfortunately as many IT managers/directors know implementing such a program can be very difficult.
One way to overcome the issues and hurdles in implementing such a program is to provide your employees with quick tips and authentication best practices to empower them to be more aware. These emphasized security tips can help employees throughout their day and better understand the risks associated with being unaware.
