Hackers will be targeting your business and trying to pinpoint your most critical assets long before you know they are there. Even if your security program is mature enough to protect endpoints and patch vulnerabilities routinely, your IT and security teams aren't the sole sentinels defending the business. Maintaining security is a shared responsibility across the entire organization, encompassing every team and individual. All it takes is one employee accessing one phishing email to put your enterprise at risk. Many security vulnerabilities can be caught and resolved by ensuring your enterprise is performing security hygiene basics, so be sure to work on practicing good security behaviors with the C-suite, board and other employees.
Establishing a positive security culture within your organization can improve your credibility with business executives, making them willing to discuss more advanced security strategies with you. Additionally, employees can contribute to organization-wide preparedness against cyber threats by participating in incentivized and engaging security training. The results of said training will give your security team even clearer metrics to analyze about the true state of enterprise security, and they can develop a plan to prioritize risks and improve future results.
