The importance of a cyber-aware culture in business

Updated: Oct 15, 2021

Every day, cyber attacks are becoming more sophisticated. This is a forewarning to us all, that any company, big or small, should work to increase their employees’ awareness when it comes to cyber risk.

According to a study conducted by Stanford University, nine out of 10 data breaches happen as a result of employee negligence, with over 23,000 breaches annually recorded in the UK / year.

Educating employees about best practice will help organisations to better protect their data, and integrity. No-one is exempt from receiving a malware email or phishing scam, and every business should create a culture that values cyber security.

A cyber-aware culture is more than just technology, it’s about people, processes, and engagement. By working together, you can make cyber security a part of your everyday culture.

On the NEBRC website, you can find a selection of resources tailored for a range of organisations, as well as our FREE core membership option, which gives you and your team access to many of our resources.
