When security is built into the culture of your organization, it ensures that every employee within the company understands the importance of cyber security and the impact that a data breach can have. Human error is the number one cause of a cyber-attack and cybercriminals are quick to take advantage of this lack of cyber security awareness to launch a targeted attack. The development of a comprehensive information security strategy will protect sensitive data, reduce threats and ensure the reputation of our organization remains intact.
