Internal Attacks Are Mostly Unknown & Increasing Periodically

Cyber crime and physical crime from external and internal sources is increasing everyday having potential to cause massive damage, financially and potentially to human life. The threats range from simple thefts to bio terror attacks and they can change every day. The problem is compounded in enterprises where employee turnover is high and security awareness programs are static and expensive to implement, monitor and measure. 45% of all security breaches occur from within a company. Damage or threats to a company�s resources from internal forces are considered to be more serious and dangerous than those posed by external forces. In today�s business arena reports of such attacks are growing day by day, despite astronomical investments made by companies on security to safeguard business assets, due to lack of security awareness amongst employees.

"Federal investigators say that the tools and gears of security equipment are not as effective in the absence of appropriate and continuous employee training on potential threats"

Security Awareness content must be dynamic. The themes should be based on specific threats, severity of the threats, enterprise-specific vulnerability, enterprise physical location, and enterprise business vertical. Security awareness program must also be able to track the awareness level of all employees and have the capability to identify, report and defend against any known attacks on an enterprise.

Security and ROI (Return On Investment)

Information and enterprise security are important components of most corporate balance sheets today. Good understanding of your current business scenario and how employees would benefit from security awareness should precede an investment in security solutions.

To generate an ROI on Security solutions, the following issues need to be addressed:

  • What is the company�s �Current Security Level�? How knowledgeable is the company staff about Security?
  • What is the most effective method of education the employees? Would it be a dedicated workshop session or would it be an autonomous, on the job training?
  • How compliant are the Security solutions to the current Laws?
  • Is the Security solution measurable in terms of increased awareness of the employees?
  • Finally, how cost-effective is the solution and what would be the Effectiveness/Investment ratio?
