Week 2 – Cybersecurity from the Break Room to the Board Room

We are all part of protecting personal and organizational data in the workplace. From CEO to incoming entry-level employee, each organization’s cybersecurity posture is reliant on a shared level of vigilance and awareness. Week 2 looks at how every employee can promote a culture of cybersecurity at work.

Layer 8 Security loves this week’s topic; understanding that cybersecurity needs to be top-down driven and deserves top-of-mind awareness. The more fully the C-Suite adopts a privacy and security world view, the more likely each and every employee will maintain their vigilance in internet use.

Last week, we shared the Layer 8 Security White Paper “Protecting your Most Precious People: A Guide to Good Family Cybersecurity, which can be found and downloaded for free on our website Case Studies. The white paper focuses squarely on the simple steps individuals and families can, should and must do to protect their personal information. This week, the same precautionary actions need to be applied to one’s time spent on work devices.

In addition to visiting our website and reading the White Paper, please go the Department of Homeland Security’s website https://www.dhs.gov/stopthinkconnect for links that videos, toolkits and promotional materials to help bring this important issue to top of mind status.
