Human errors cause almost 90% of data breaches. So, even if you have a robust cybersecurity infrastructure in place, such as a Next Generation Firewall, the lack of skilled cybersecurity professionals can leave a significant gap in your cybersecurity initiatives. This gap can then be easily exploited by cybercriminals to carry out a data breach or other cyberattacks. And with cybersecurity attacks getting more sophisticated by the day, the need to have a skilled cybersecurity team becomes even more critical.
Building a strong human firewall to bridge the cybersecurity skills gap requires a lot of training and practice, which can cause organizations to abandon the process midway. However, when done correctly, a strong human firewall can empower your employees and make them more proactive in ensuring that your organization is safe from cyberattacks. What you’ll require are the right program and sound teaching methods to make your employees aware of the importance of cybersecurity and how employees play an equal, important role in maintaining it.
