Before teaching them awareness tips, staff must buy in to why. Rules and tips require context. Employees will be asking: “Why do I need them?”

Here are some topics that can help employees understand WHY they need to learn good cyber hygiene:

1. How the organization is being targeted
2. Industry stories about incidents at related organizations
3. How individuals like them have been targeted
4. Impacts from ransomware and malware
5. Impacts from fraud attacks
6. Impacts from accidental exposures
7. Impacts from insider threats

What have you found that gets employees’ attention and buy-in to participate in awareness training?
