From the Art of War: “avoid what is strong and… strike at what is weak.”
Large-scale studies such as IBM’s 2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index reveal that 95% of all security breaches are the result of human error.
This is well-understood by today’s cyber attackers, who know that people are the weakest link in cybersecurity.
Most corporations and organizations focus on technical and policy solutions to cybersecurity but do not sufficiently address the root cause of security breaches: human error. Effective cybersecurity requires comprehensive programs that incorporate cyber defense into the core of the workplace. Much as high-risk industries (e.g. mining, electrical, transit, oil) integrate safety into the workplace; and successful manufacturing companies incorporate quality into the workplace; organizations can follow the example of those industries to blend cyber defense into the workplace.
