The statistics prove it over and over again. Once IT security protocols are established by competent technicians, your employees are your most significant security gap. Why? Because people, for the most part, are good and trusting. Your employees are busy at their work and just assume that the emails coming into their box or the sites they land on in the performance of their duties are legitimate.
Here’s the truth.
Untrained employees click links they shouldn’t, they open up email attachments that have malicious code embedded in them, and they are well meaning when they answer questions in emails that look like they are from authentic sources.
Companies are overwhelmingly choosing to bring cybersecurity training to their employees. The reason for this shift is that nearly every employee in IT-dependent companies has access to a computer. As a result of this access, each employee is a potential target and a potential avenue by which cybercriminals can gain access to the company’s IT systems.
The Hill Tech Solutions team takes three-pronged approach to helping your employees act in a more secure manner while doing their daily work online.
Unfortunately, employees are notorious for putting access codes, credentials, and passwords on sticky notes by their computer or using their dog’s name for these security measures. While there is some humor in the situation, there won’t be when a criminal guesses their password or sees the sticky note in an office party photo put on social media. We help employees learn what makes a strong password and we implement password management protocols and two-factor authentication that will help forgetful employees keep your data and workflow safe.
