Cybersecurity awareness: Awaken your employees!

Employees who are not sufficiently aware of the challenges of cybersecurity are the main source of risk, particularly if they are unaware of their role in the company’s protection chain.

of the cybersecurity threats people face have been caused in some way by human error.

Raising awareness of cybersecurity: a real challenge for companies

The constant threat of cyber-attacks requires ongoing awareness-raising to maintain vigilance. However, a major obstacle is the lack of resources and budgets allocated to awareness-raising, which can lead to neglect of regular staff training.

Another challenge is employees’ perception of cybersecurity, which is often associated with technical jargon that may seem far from their daily tasks. It’s crucial to make people understand that, through good practices, every employee contributes to securing the company.

Human error refers to the unintentional actions – or lack of action – of employees that cause, propagate or enable a security breach.

2 types of error:

  • Skill-related errors, hence the importance of raising employee awareness
  • Decision-based errors, hence the importance of population testing

Cybersecurity awareness


It requires a well-thought-out approach, adapted to employees’ day-to-day tasks, to overcome these challenges and reinforce the company’s overall security.

Why is it important to test employees regularly?

Testing employees on a regular basis helps maintain a high level of understanding of risks and best practices. These assessments help identify areas for reinforcement and measure the ongoing effectiveness of the awareness program over time.

How can I set up an effective awareness program at my company?

Setting up an effective awareness-raising program means first assessing your company's specific needs. It's up to the awareness program to adapt to the company, not the other way around. We can provide you with personalized advices to develop a program tailored to your environment.
