Regional variations in cybersecurity training
The study also shows that there are regional variations in training and attitudes towards cybersecurity, with 54% of employees in China and 43% in France saying their respective organizations do not offer mandatory cybersecurity training.This number breaks down to 17% for the UK, 30% for the US and 22% for Germany.
Create a collaborative and positive safety culture
Many organizations take a top-down approach to cybersecurity training and culture.However, research shows that it is critical to develop a collaborative and positive safety culture in every organization.Under-trained employees risk weakening the organization's overall readiness, which is why organizations must design their technology infrastructure to minimize problems for end users.
