Cybersecurity Awareness Is About Both ‘Knowing’ and ‘Doing’

Ask any IT security professional and you’ll get the same answer. One of the biggest cybersecurity challenges is the human factor, making cybersecurity awareness more vital than ever in our mobilized, interconnected world.

According to the 2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index, an astounding 95 percent of all security incidents involve human error. The most prevalent mistake? Double clicking on an infected attachment or unsafe URL. 

The most common security issues in education according to SANS (https://www.sans.org/):

  • Passwords Passwords Creating a system that both allows you to create complex passwords and remember them is challenging.
  • Accidental Release of Information Accidental Release of Information Confidential information can be accidentally released in many ways.
