Talk to Your Entry Level Hires About Cybersecurity. It Could Save Your Business

May is here, which means a fresh wave of college graduates and interns are about to hit the job market. Chances are likely that your company has a few new hires lined up, and is making space in the office for them. 

Here’s some advice: Consider including some basic cybersecurity awareness in their training programs.

A new study shows that 70 percent of higher education students say they are aware that cybercrime and cyberattacks are a threat, which is encouraging to see.

However...

  • Just 35 percent think that cybersecurity is their responsibility;
  • Less than 20 percent say they are concerned about cybercrime;
  • And ninety percent are more concerned about their grades than cybersecurity, which could be a dangerous attitude to bring to the workplace. Someone with this mentality may be more apt to focus on productivity than safety, which could lead to risky behavior like opening an attachment containing ransomware.
