Employees' lack of cyber security knowledge may pose one of the greatest risks to an organization's network security.  Hackers often send "phishing" emails that contain viruses which can then be opened by unsuspecting employees.  Also, employees logging on to the company network using an unprotected Wi-Fi connection may open the network to vulnerability.

Properly trained employees are the first line of defense against a cyber attack.  HR, along with IT, should consider implementing training for employees on preventing data breaches.

The training for employees should include education on different types of exposures and on how employees can protect against security breaches.  Employee training should also include instructions on what to do in the event of a suspected or confirmed cyber attack.

Employee training on cyber security should be a priority for all organizations, regardless of size.  Hackers don't discriminate in their targets, and may even go after small and mid-size companies knowing these organizations frequently have fewer safeguards in place.
