Building a Security-First Culture

Organizations are looking to build a “security-first culture”, one where security topics are discussed and implemented at every level in the organization. Whether it be at the C-suite, the IT department, or in the call center, security is now more important than ever.

Your Organization will have three main fears when it comes to dealing with security:

  1. Crisis of Confidence– Customers want to deal with organizations that put security first. Over 50% of all businesses this year will experience a cybersecurity incident that could drive customers away.
  2. Reduction of Revenue– It costs money to deal with a security incident. Colonial Pipeline just paid out 5 million dollars in ransomware money. Key systems going down are not cheap to fix, and most organizations cannot survive a major cybersecurity attack.
  3. Failure of Function – Businesses survive when things work correctly. Losing the ability to transact with your customers, or having your website go down for even a few hours can be catastrophic.

The good news is that by implementing a security-first culture, most businesses can avoid these three fears.

Different departments in an organization will need different types of training.
