Do employees have a strong security mindset?
Employees must understand the critical role they play in protecting themselves and your organization, such as keeping equipment secure and reporting incidents immediately.
Your security policies and procedures are a starting point, but the best approach is to build a strong security mindset through awareness and training. This helps employees to ‘think secure’ in everything they do, and make the right decision in risk situations.
Are your processes putting personal safety at risk?
Cyberattacks and vulnerabilities can cause errors and failures within your processes. Aside from disruptions, these can lead to workplace accidents and the delivery of unsafe products to customers.
A holistic cybersecurity strategy takes personal safety into account. It helps you comply with regulations such as health and safety, and data privacy. It also protects your reputation as a secure and safe organization that values its employees and customers.
Is your technology keeping people safe?
Cyberattacks tend to target information and operational systems, but not exclusively to steal personal data and intellectual property. They can be used to cause power outages, disrupt production, and alter or vandalize operational information. All of this can put people at risk and cause extensive financial damage.
Critical technology must be secure from unauthorised interference, and this extends beyond your operational processes. For example, fire systems must be secure, as must the systems that protect your sites, such as access-control doors and CCTV.
