Bolster your first line of defence – 5 tips to foster a security culture

Originally posted on IT World Canada.

Hard pill to swallow: you can have the most advanced, innovative, and expensive technology in your security program, but if your entire team doesn’t operate with security in mind, you’ve wasted your money. The truth is, a security-driven culture is not only your first, but best line of defence against cyber threats.

There are a number of ways you can cultivate an environment where your entire team feels supported to use best cybersecurity practices everyday, including:

✔ Making it About Learning, Not Consequences
✔ Establishing Formal Policies
✔ Scheduling Training Simulations
✔ Not Keeping Security in a Silo
✔ Implementing Security Frameworks

In this IT World Canada (ITWC) article, our CEO and Founder, Darren Gallop discusses these steps in detail to help you foster a security-driven culture that empowers every member of your team to prioritize security.
