Is your business taking its cybersecurity and cloud security seriously? Because if it isn’t, then your sensitive data and files could be at risk. With a strong cloud security plan, your business can build credibility and trust with its clients. To get things started, it is imperative that your cloud storage service provider take cloud security seriously. Below is a guide on how to raise general cybersecurity awareness and what steps you can take to ensure that you are practicing good cybersecurity habits.
When it comes to thinking about cybersecurity and cyberattacks, it is easy to forget about unknown or unlikely threats. It is only when the threat is right at your door do you realize it and move to action. The key to being prepared then is to be mindful of the threat before it happens. The way to do this is by changing your behavior to account for threats.
So, how does that work? The first step to changing your behavior is to make the unknown or unlikely threat into something that we have experienced before. By doing this, you can create a sense of being mindful and prepared for a threat because you expect one to strike. To do this you need to get the threat across to keep it in people’s minds.
The first step is to do as mentioned above – make the threat something people are familiar with in order to start developing the right mindset. For example, think about how a doctor doesn’t know about a threat (virus or disease) but is always vigilant and on the lookout for any symptoms.
The next step is to expose employees to the idea of the unknown threat so that you can shift their cybersecurity mindset. The more exposure they receive, the more likely they will understand the importance of being mindful of cyberattacks.
The final step is to show wins against potential cyberattacks. Encouraging data backups, pointing out suspicious emails, and showing the benefits of a strong password are all great ideas in reinforcing the success of being mindful. Reward and credit those who have the right cybersecurity mindset.
