National Cybersecurity Awareness Month Week 2: Cybersecurity in the Workplace is Everyone’s Business

Creating a culture of cybersecurity is critical for all organizations ‒ large and small businesses, academic institutions, non-profits, and government agencies – and must be a shared responsibility among all employees. Week 2 will showcase how organizations can protect against the most common cyber threats. The week will also look at resources to help organizations strengthen their cyber resilience, including the use of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework.

How can you prevent cyber threats?

Forbes recently published an article stating: 97% of respondents admitted that human error causes network outages and problems, with over two-thirds stating that monitoring solutions fail to predict most issues.” Education is the best defense against cybersecurity threats. Here are a few ways you can prevent data breaches:

  • Do not share or reuse passwords
  • Do not click on links or open attachments from unknown senders
  • Enforce password policies
  • Verify requests for sensitive information

Businesses can reduce cyber threats with firewalls, web-filtering, email filtering, network monitoring and anti-virus protection.
