Initiate employee training

While conservative estimates say that just under 80% of data breaches stem from employee mistakes, more liberal studies place that figure in the upper 90 percentile. By training your employees on best practices for data security, you can significantly reduce the risk of data breaches within your organization.

Furthermore, as the prevalence and impact of cyberthreats is only increasing, consider conducting cybersecurity employee training routinely — ideally every four to six months.
