Cybersecurity refers to the practices, processes, and technologies designed to protect networks, devices, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access. Cybersecurity may also be referred to as information technology security.
Unfortunately, one of the biggest sources of a data breach is not some unknown or forgotten security bug; it’s human error. According to recent studies, human error accounts for over 50% of the root causes of cybersecurity breaches.
It seems like an everyday occurrence on the evening news; reports of random violence on individuals or families, home invasions, attacks on fellow employees, and workplace shootings.
Within the realm of business, theft, physical attacks and workplace violence have a significant impact on a company’s ability to provide a safe environment. This can require several layers of security and employee awareness to protect personnel, property, and data.
