In cybersecurity, the weakest link is often not technology, but the human using it. Human error is a leading cause of cyber breaches, underscoring the need for robust Security Awareness Training. Explore how Stygian Cyber Security's solutions are designed to empower employees and reinforce the human element in your cyber defence strategy.

Helping You Navigate Your Digital Terrain Safely.

Cybersecurity is an increasingly vital aspect of modern business, and a robust security infrastructure is essential. However, even the most advanced security system is vulnerable if the weakest link – human error – is not addressed.

Human Error as The Weakest Link: A Pervasive Issue

Despite advancements in cybersecurity technology, human error remains a major vulnerability. A study by the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office found that human error accounted for 90% of cyber data breaches in 20191. Whether it’s falling for a phishing scam, using weak passwords, or mishandling sensitive data, the human element can often be the weakest link in cybersecurity.

Strengthening the Human Link with Security Awareness Training

Addressing the human aspect is paramount to mitigating cybersecurity risks. This is where Security Awareness Training comes into play. It equips employees with the knowledge and tools to recognize and respond to cyber threats, turning a potential weakness into a line of defence.

Stygian Cyber Security offers comprehensive Security Awareness Training programs tailored to fit the unique needs of your organisation. Our training modules are designed to reinforce best practices and keep staff updated on evolving threats.

Practical Steps to Reduce Human Error as The Weakest Link

Besides comprehensive training, there are other practical steps businesses can take. These include enforcing robust password policies, enabling two-factor authentication, and regular system updates. Stygian Cyber Security’s Managed Security Services ensure these measures are implemented and managed effectively, reducing the burden on your team.
