Malware and Phishing Attacks Represent 74% of Data Breaches
3 of 4 data breaches come from malware downloaded by people or phishing scams that trap unsuspecting victims.
As a result, 42% of organizations punish their employees for being victimized. Punishments range from ‘naming and shaming’ to denial of access until mandatory training has been completed.
Punishment is not an effective solution. Employees who have been through this experience a downturn in their productivity and an increase in their anxiety.
Punishing employees for being victimized is not the best approach.
91% of Attacks Launch with a Phishing Email
Phishing attacks are the most common form of social engineering leading to data breaches.
Costs for data breaches exceed $140 per record compromised. Healthcare organizations can expect costs of more than $400 per record.
Human error contributes to these breaches. Punishment is not an effective strategy for retraining employees.
Dr John Blythe, Head of Behavioral Science at CybSafe, studied the results of punishments for employees. His conclusion was:
“Formally punishing staff for making cybersecurity slips is, in the vast majority of instances, a problematic approach. It’s unfair and diminishes productivity. It can cause heightened levels of resentment, stress, and skepticism about cybersecurity. It may also trigger legal challenges. And people are much less likely to report quickly, if at all, when they are frightened of being punished for doing so.”
Creating unproductive and anxious employees is not the goal of good management.
There is a better way to raise the cyber hygiene level of your organization.
