Most successful data breaches can be traced back to human error. With a little training, your employees can help keep themselves and their organization better protected. This first part in a series on cyber security awareness asks why you should care about data breaches. Any device connected to the internet is at risk for cyber attacks. It is often assumed large organizations are the only ones targeted, but actually 61% of all attacks involve smaller companies. Any person or company can be at risk.

This course shows an interview with a hacker who takes a deeper dive into what drives hackers. They are naturally curious and if a loophole is discovered, it is possible their findings can be used at the expense of others. However, there are both good and bad types of hackers. Many are hired by companies to review their own security protocols and identify gaps in security.

Since 51% of hackers are part of organized criminal groups, it is important to learn the steps you can take to protect your data and that of your company. By taking this online course to become more aware of cyber security, you can help to protect your customers and prevent financial loss.
