A Big Threat for SMBs: Why Cybersecurity is Everyone’s Responsibility

This Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we encourage everyone to See Yourself In Cyber. The most successful security and privacy programs include every member of a company’s team – cultivating a security-driven culture that empowers each team member to prioritize security in their everyday operations is essential.

From the founder who sets a security-focused tone to the specific teams that implement the policies, to the HR department responsible for onboarding new employees, to the IT team setting system password requirements, and to every employee that can potentially open a phishing email triggering a security incident, it’s a collective effort to stay aware. All individuals need to be trained, vigilant, and engaged. The devil is in the details, as it’s the tools, tasks, and routine activities each team member performs that will protect the company.

Check out this article in Spiceworks News and Insights where our VP of Product Innovation, Denise Schroeder discusses 4 ways to cultivate a security-driven culture and ensure your team is both your company’s first line of defence and greatest cybersecurity asset.
