Cultivating a Security Culture
Today’s attackers are increasingly taking a more targeted and personal approach in their schemes, and they are skilled in exploiting your eagerness to provide professional service to your vendors, partners and clients. A phone call from a vendor asking for the email of a colleague is often one small step in developing the premise for a scheme so detailed and legitimate-sounding that it could fool a CEO. It is no longer sufficient to train employees on proper technology use. You must give them the confidence they need to think critically, in contexts you can’t predict, and to make judgments that matter. This white paper addresses the reality of the responsibility to secure your data and the importance of creating a security culture at your firm.
