Over the last year and a half, the world has become well acquainted with the idea of cyber data breaches. During 2014 and into this year, it seems like a new massive data breach has been reported week after week, with each seemingly exposing more records than the last. From Target to Home Depot to eBay to Anthem, most people have data at risk.
While these threats are most often initiated by outsiders – nefarious programmers writing malicious code designed to pilfer corporate data, siphon confidential customer information and/or raid company financial data – cyber criminals are too often able to gain access due to employees' ignorance and/or negligence.
It is therefore essential for every business to educate employees about cybersecurity, to train them before a breach occurs. In this slideshow, Kaspersky has identified 10 tips that can help you educate your employees and develop policies that will help mitigate ever-growing cybersecurity risks.
