Cybersecurity 101 – Train your staff to combat hackers
Abstract: When it comes to cyberthreats, employees are on the front line, but many of them are unprepared. They may not be aware of the risks and red flags, and they may not know how to respond when cybercriminals strike. With the average total cost of a data breach at $4.35 million, and nonprofits far from immune, it’s time to provide staff with the training they need. This article summarizes the critical components of cybersecurity training, including passwords; social engineering; business vs. pleasure online accounts and devices; and safe browsing. A brief sidebar discusses the benefits of interactive cybersecurity training.
