Online reputation is everything and cyber attacks and data breaches are a huge threat to all companies. These breaches are among the main threats to global stability and, in addition to financial costs, affect the credibility of companies. A solid information security strategy is crucial to avoid losing money.
The first step in making this happen is to make employees more aware of data security. They should see cybersecurity as a priority:
Show them how cybersecurity can be applied to personal security. Show the value of information when it comes to your security, not just the interests of the company
Make it clear that everyone can be attacked, so the speed and efficiency with which people react can minimize the damage

Create a cybersecurity training plan for employees.
Talk about data ethics, so that employees treat data the same way they would treat a human being
Teach employees the use of data can be restricted. Emphasize privacy
Conduct cybersecurity simulations, which can also be adapted to specific work situations in which employees may be victims
Keep employees up to date on security protocols, new scams and viruses and any important information about cybersecurity
Recognize and reward the employee who reports attacks
Create a culture of cybersecurity and keep employees motivated to maintain best practices on the subject
Owners, CEOs, directors, everyone must take cybersecurity seriously and spread that culture
