Cyber Security and Sage 50 CA

2 minute read time.

The 8th layer of cyber security is humans; it's also a great podcasHeadphoneswhich tells us that human error is the main way that organizations get compromised. To lead cyber security awareness well, you need to understand things like marketing, communication, psychology, human behaviour and so much more.

Yet there's a gap between intentions and behaviour. Security awareness doesn't equate to security behaviour. There's often many things we know but have no intention to perform.  We may have a knowledge of things to make our lives better but the vast majority of us don't follow through. Old patterns creep back in.

Out of this flow 3 realities:

  1. Just because I'm aware, doesn't mean that I care
  2. If we try to work against human nature, we will fail
  3. What our employees do, is way more important than what we know
    • In the moment action, is part of the cause.

How people behave is the key. In previous blogs, we've explored the  5 Step Process to improving cybersecurity and we've also shared our Top 6 tips to be sure you are contacting “the real Sage” for software assistance.
