Do you prioritize your physical security over cybersecurity? If so, you may wish to reevaluate the way you protect your business. Although physical security is still relevant, new technology and malware have enabled hackers to easily access critical data remotely instead of having to physically break in to steal it. Because of this, cybersecurity training should be a priority in order to protect your business from the hidden threat posed from cybercriminals.
This necessity is highlighted by the shifting emphasis from CEOs to better defend their organizations. According to a report from the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security at Auburn University, in all 4 categories of importance, budget, personnel, and strategy, over 80% of CEOs prioritize cybersecurity over physical security. The main reason for this new focus on cybersecurity in these organizations were the findings of internal risk assessments. These assessments identified the holes and weaknesses in defenses, and after analyzing the reports, CEOs recognized the need for solutions to reduce cyber risk.
