Data breaches continue to make headlines around the world. Seemingly, no matter what defensive measures security professionals put in place, attackers can circumvent them. No organisation is too large or too small to fall victim to a data breach. No industry vertical is immune to attack. Regardless of the type or volume of organisational data, there is someone out there who is trying to steal it. Having a sound understanding of the threats you and your peer organisations face, how they have evolved over time, and what tactics are most likely to be utilised can prepare you to better manage these risks.

According to Forbes; training and culture are key elements of a successful cybersecurity strategy because so much of the vulnerability an organisation faces is from within. Strong security is not just about a chief information security officer’s (CISOs) immediate team; it’s about how strong and resilient the entire enterprise is from a human standpoint. Awareness is a big part of the battle. Incorporating best practices into every nook of the business is another. Educate and train employees and stakeholders on best practices to prevent or reduce breaches that target insiders, such as phishing. Think of awareness and action across the enterprise as a human firewall. (Forbes, 2019 The Importance Of Training: Cybersecurity Awareness As A Firewall
 
A recent Forbes Insights survey of over 200 CISOs found that talent and training constraints have a significant impact on security organisations. The following security initiatives were CISOs highest priority for funding in the coming year;

• 14% Creating a culture of security
• 14% Hiring more cybersecurity staff
• 13% Better security training of employees
