5 Ways Cybersecurity Training is Critical

Avoid Overlooked Security

Many times, in-house IT teams are directed to meet specific deadlines and rush projects out the door while letting security fall by the wayside. This creates the risk of a breach as more unsecure technologies are introduced into their infrastructure. Web application designers face a similar dilemma with growing pressure to get applications out the door in a specific timeframe. In many of those cases, security is again overlooked, leaving users of those apps vulnerable to attacks.

Secure the Vulnerability in the "Internet of Things"

Hackers have found that many IoT devices are riddled with security flaws. Businesses that use internet-connected devices should continuously test their ecosystem. This includes any networks, applications and databases that connect to IoT technologies.

Protect Threats from BYOD

Because BYODs are ubiquitous. It’s critical for mobile application developers and businesses to continuously test, identify and remediate security vulnerabilities within mobile applications and devices.

Protect and Secure Your Databases

Cybercriminals are after sensitive and valuable data that can be sold on the dark web. Data leakage or unauthorized modification of data are all made possible by simple missteps including configuration mistakes, identification and access control issues, missing patches or a combination of the above. Your firm needs to frequently test to make sure that your databases do not also contain security vulnerabilities.

Recognize Weak Passwords

A weak password is short, common, a system default, or something that could be rapidly guessed by executing a brute force attack using a subset of all possible passwords, such as words in the dictionary, proper names, words based on the username or common variations on these themes. Testing can enable businesses to identify weak passwords, will increase their security.

Build a Cybersecurity Program

Have a Cybersecurity Team

Whether you build an internal team or you need to outsource, there are many options available within your budget. You have to first take security seriously to recognize your need for a security team. It’s important to define what security even mean to your organization. What types of IP risks do you have on hand? How would a data leak impact the business? What are potential financial losses? What is the cost of your reputation?

Security Begins at the Onboarding Process

Effective security training begins with onboarding and happens throughout the entire year. This training must happen from the top down and needs to be ongoing. Every employee must be involved in the training process for its success. Remove the fear and educate them and reward good behavior.

Craft Measurable Goals

Outlines cybersecurity goals that can be measured. One measurable goal that any organization can set today is to reduce the number of threats or phishing attacks. This needs to have full transparency that the whole company can see and track. Set goals that tie back to the employees so that they can understand security and how their behavior impacts the organization. Measure month over month to determine whether the training is helping. Employees need to be thinking about their behavior and its impact on the organization.

Create Extensions to the Security Team

Leverage internal leaders to make sure that you are using and harnessing the potential strengths of all of the employees. These security leaders should be available to address questions/concerns within their own divisions. These security leaders can help further, teach, promote and bring awareness to cybersecurity.
