Culture of Security

Establishing a Culture of SecurityEmployees can be a firm’s greatest asset and biggest weakness when it comes to cybersecurity. That’s because, even with sophisticated perimeter security and vigilant monitoring, a huge vulnerability, remains the people who use a firm’s IT systems to conduct transactions and access sensitive data.
