Some things in life are “set-it-and-forget-it.” Things like a Crock-Pot slow-cooker, or your DVR. IT security, however, does not fall into that category.
Instead, especially for businesses – typical targets of cybercrime and data breaches – it’s imperative that employees stay as informed and as equipped as possible about constantly changing threats. And that means they must engage in ongoing security awareness training. Why? Because hackers and cyber-criminals are opportunistic, skilled, relentless, and nimble as cats, readjusting and accelerating their methods and techniques as soon as the good guys figure out ways to stop them.
