Exploring Aspects of Human Error in Cybersecurity

Organizations rely heavily on secure networks, hardware and software to protect their data from attacks, but many may not realize their biggest risk is actually their untrained employees. Studies show that 88% of data breach incidents are caused by mistakes employees make. Human errors can have widespread effects on your organization and result in significant financial loss when data falls into the wrong hands. 

Cybersecurity awareness is an integral component in keeping organizations secure, yet awareness training is something that many companies fail to prioritize. Even organizations that implement security awareness training sometimes don’t get the expected results because the training is not engaging and memorable. This is why it is critical to implement a program that will deliver relevant and engaging training to employees in order to create real behavior change.

In this webinar, Global Learning Systems’ Vice President Suzanne Gorman discusses:

  • What leads to phishing attacks?
  • What are proper protocols for user access and privileged access?
  • How do you prevent exposure of C-level executives?
  • How do you establish an incident response plan?
  • What security awareness training is necessary to avoid these risks?
