Today, February 5th, is international Safer Internet Day.
This year, the event will be celebrating its tenth anniversary across 140 countries.
Although it may sound tedious, reiterating the significance of cyber security to your team is actually of paramount importance.
Every employee, regardless of their seniority, will handle some form of sensitive data and this instantly makes them a risk.
Seemingly innocent mistakes like reusing weak passwords, misplacing devices that store information and forgetting to delete ex employees off the system open your business up to infiltration. Reputational damage, hefty fines and even a lessened ability to operate are all potential outcomes of improper internet usage – and your employees need to understand this. Make it clear to everyone in your company that online security is a shared responsibility and unidentified behaviour, regardless of how it occurred, will be reported.
