Many people assume that technology should be doing all the work when it comes to security. However, while technology is a vital part of security, it shouldn’t stand on its own. Essentially, blinking lights and shiny objects don’t make you more secure.
Security education and training is just as important as the technology behind it, and here’s why:
- Education – So much of what happens to us is tied to assumptions; that those of us who are in the know believe that everyone else should just know. Unfortunately, that is not the case, which is why security education is so important.
- Keep a Watchful Eye – You know how they tell you at the airport, if you see something, say something? The same applies here. Always be vigilant and keep a watchful eye. It might save your company when ransomware hits.
- Sharing is Caring – Make sure you share your stories with your peers, the FBI and/or local law enforcement. Just because you were a victim of a cyber crime doesn’t mean you can’t prevent it from happening to someone else.
