A recent study by CompTIA cited human error as the most common cause of information security breaches, with some 80% of respondents believing this human error was caused by a lack of security knowledge, training, or failure to follow security procedures.
To eliminate threats throughout the organization, security must reach beyond the IT department. A company must evaluate employee exit strategies (HR), remote project protocol, on- and off-site data storage practices, and more—then establish and enforce new policies and procedures and physical safeguards appropriate to the findings.
Join Technical Instructor Warren Bonner as he discusses several ways your business can help prevent a data breach, including:
- Conducting a periodic risk assessment
- Educating employees about appropriate handling and protection of sensitive data
- Establishing a comprehensive data loss protection plan
- Providing training and technical support to mobile workers
