Despite how secure and safe the system may be, humans are always regarded the weakest security link. Unfortunately, a system cannot operate without some form of human intervention.
Therefore, companies end up spending a lot of money in trying to find credible cyber security solutions but fail to address the underlying security issue caused by the human elements. Human errors whether malicious or accidental can lead to some serious, hard to rectify security breaches and risks.
Most companies do not tend to plan for cyber security awareness and training programs that should focus on equipping the management and IT teams with up-to-date cyber-attack prevention measures.
Companies should focus on having employees who know how to securely share, store and dispose of data in such a manner that does not compromise the company’s data security. They should also uphold the laws that govern client information and data confidentiality such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and technoblink.
