These behaviours raise your client’s cyber risk

Some classic examples of employee behaviour that is risky are clicking on an obviously suspicious email, opening attachments they weren’t expecting and creating passwords that are easy for anyone to guess. The root causes of risky computer use are lack of awareness, lack of understanding about how security affects ordinary workflows and competing priorities.

It is important for senior leadership to transmit implicit and explicit messages about cyber safety. They should educate employees and encourage them to practice safe computer use to decrease risk of a phishing attack.
