The #1 vulnerability any organization faces in cybersecurity is the human factor. This is especially true for small to mid sized businesses where employees will encounter 350% more social engineering attacks than employees at large businesses. Given that 95% of all cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error, this makes a compelling argument for the wisdom of investing in cybersecurity awareness training for staff.
Studies show that there is an attractive return on investment for cybersecurity awareness training. A Ponemon Institute study found that even the least effective security awareness training produced a 7 fold return on investment, and most cybersecurity awareness training programs produce a 37 fold return on investment and reduce security related risks by over 70%.
