Human error remains a pain point for both IT and Security Managers. So when it results in a security incident, human error can be especially costly to any organisation.
The days of blaming users for security mistakes are quickly coming to an end. Savvy security and IT professionals are more aware that the responsibility of training and educating employees now rests on their shoulders.
But quite frankly, this can be a challenge. Hundreds of engagements have taught us that there are three main barriers that Security Leaders encounter when setting up awareness initiatives:
- Time constraints
“I have no time,” or “With what time I have, this is not my highest priority.”
- Communication issues
“How can I convince staff to take security seriously?” or “How do I get staff interested in this?”
“How can I provide ongoing hard evidence to my stakeholders that security awareness training is needed and that it works.”
