The importance of knowledge

A good cybersecurity program for any sized business starts with a good understanding of what cybersecurity is, why it is important, and how it can help protect your business. Continuous learning, testing of your awareness, and refreshing what you’ve previously learned all play a critical role in the success of your cybersecurity program.

Awareness and education

Both awareness and education compliment your cybersecurity program by keeping this topic at the forefront of your mind and your employees minds. The best thing is, you don’t even have to be an expert yourself. Some ways you can continue to bring awareness regularly:

  • Discuss a cybersecurity topic at every meeting. These can be things like phishing emails you’ve received, news stories on cybersecurity attacks, pop quizzes in cybersecurity terms. You can keep this short so you do not burn out your team.
  • Deploy phishing email tests on your staff to see how they react to phishing emails.
  • Bring in a quest speaker or watch webinars to speak on cybersecurity.
  • Talk to your staff about what your business is doing to be cybersecure.

The role these play

These three topics are all part of cybersecuring your small business. Without understanding what cybersecurity is, its importance, and the role it plays, how will you  securely protect your critical data and resources? It is okay to not be an expert, but it is important to have a basic understanding and an understanding of the tools you use so you can better protect your business.
