The human is the greatest vulnerability in any organization.
In this era of persistent cyber threats, an organization will be secure only with the active participation of everyone. Each member of the group, from the newest employee to the chief executive, holds the power to harm or to help, to weaken or strengthen, the organization’s security posture.
Following a public comment period, the NICE Working Group Workforce Management Subgroup released the guidebook, “Cybersecurity is Everyone’s Job”, in October 2018. This guidebook provides things to know, and things to do, for everyone in an organization, regardless of its type or size. It is intended for the general audience, which may not otherwise be knowledgeable about, or interested in, cybersecurity. It can be read as a complete guide, or by each business function as standalone guides.
This is about turning the organization’s greatest vulnerability—its people—into the organization’s greatest asset.
