As a c-level executive, do you know who is the biggest target in your organization? YOU are! Globally, 40% of companies cited their executives, including the CEOs, as their highest security risk (Information Age/Prescient). In many cases, executives can be the target of malicious hacking scheme, and in other cases, an executive can fall prey to an attacker via social media, when traveling, or when accessing email. A couple of tips: be wary of short generic messages, be mindful of unusual communication with people you don’t know (and do know) on social media, and always double check before clicking on links or attachments.
After you, the greatest threat to an organization is your employee. I don’t mean an employee who could unintentionally click on a link that infects your system with malware (though that is a serious concern). I am referring to an insider threat; someone with the malicious intent of removing data from your environment. Over two-thirds (69%) of organizations say they were breached due to insider threat and confirm they had a prevention solution in place at the time of the breach (Code42/HelpNetSecurity).
A possible way to combat this is to create a culture that empowers employees to positively challenge each other when they see someone doing something they shouldn’t be doing. An organization will go through many changes as it grows and changes. A constant should always be improving the culture.
