What is human firewalling?
The term human firewall is used to describe people who follow best practices to prevent as well as report any data breaches or suspicious activity.
While firewalls and other technologies can be the bedrock of an organization’s cyber security program, they can’t protect everything. Many studies show that a large percent of reported breaches include some element of human error.
Employees are busy, and it’s easy for inattentive or uninformed workers to be fooled by malicious email. With remote working set to continue, it is more critical than ever that organizations protect themselves and their people from attacks.
In Human Firewalling, we explore the five steps to increase awareness and build an integrated, holistic approach to employee communication around cyber security. Read our paper to learn more about how to elevate employee behavior from conscious choice to integrated habits.
