Lesson Content

πŸ‘ͺ Security is everybody's job
The responsibility of security is no longer confined to a security group within an organization. Employees, in all departments of a company, are constantly being targeted by sophisticated, and highly personalized attacks. These attacks target weak device security, passwords, and human behavior.

With interconnected systems and software, employees are now the largest threat vector for most companies, meaning employees are the primary target for attackers. Once attackers gain a foothold, even if it is confined to a single system, they have methods and tools to use that foothold to gain access to additional systems and data. Often, breaches are not detected for months or even years.

Every employee is a potential entry point into corporate systems for attackers. The best thing you can do is be diligent about the security of your devices and your accounts, both personal and corporate. When you experience doubts about security best practices, be sure to ask your security team before taking any action. It is much cheaper and easier to answer questions before a breach than marshal the resources to investigate and resolve a breach after it happens.
