The Need for a Cybersecurity-Centric Business Culture

Leading endpoint detection software and monitoring in place? Check.
Multifactor authentication enabled on all environment entry points? Check.
By all accounts, cutting-edge technology and skilled cybersecurity resources should be the end of the story for ensuring network integrity, right? If only it were that simple. With a recent survey indicating that 74% of cyber incidents include a human component to enable a threat actor, a company must do more to ensure a culture of cybersecurity and to protect its organization. 
So what does more look like?
More starts with understanding there is always a cybersecurity risk and ultimately ends with an established culture across all levels of the organization committed to collectively mitigating that risk. Let’s  run through a few approaches that can help establish that culture and, thus, a more secure organization.
At the end of the day, building a culture of cybersecurity is achievable by acknowledging its importance and consistently reinforcing that message. The goal is to have people thinking and talking about cybersecurity as part of their normal course of business and not simply in the context of “another training” or as something completely divorced from their role. When you find your teams are having a conversation about the latest phishing test email (for a free Thanksgiving turkey) or a recent cyber event impacting a competitor, you are witnessing the true reflection of a successful culture of cybersecurity. You should take a moment to applaud your team’s success, and then, of course, plan for how to keep it going.
