Employee security awareness training has become vital for enterprises globally due to the rampant social engineering attacks to steal confidential enterprise data. Employees, once an additional avenue for cyberattacks, today constitute about 93% of attacks, according to Verizon’s DBIR. From fake General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) privacy notices to large-scale social engineering attacks, cyber adversaries utilize every opportunity to plant malware to steal data or money.
Ignoring the human factor in cybersecurity implementations can have disastrous consequences for enterprises. Security awareness training is imperative for all enterprises, especially in Europe. The GDPR that came into effect in May 2018 mandated enterprises to train employees on security best practices to prevent data leakage. At the same time, enterprises looking to secure their valuable data need to look beyond mandated training and implement solutions that genuinely prepare their employees to become the first line of defense.
In this virtual roundtable, Frost & Sullivan’s European Cybersecurity team brings together security awareness training vendors and CISOs who understand the practical challenges and benefits of security awareness training. Gain valuable insights on strengthening the human layer as senior executives share their perspectives.
