Cybersecurity: Eight Ways You Can Boost Employee Buy-In

  1. Make Understanding A Priority

Security and compliance actually have two separate goals. A compliance program should focus on the minimally invasive way to meet all public policy and industry rules to prevent fines or other sanctions.

When employees understand the objective and outcome, you create buy-in. - Bret Piatt, Jungle Disk
