What is Cyber Security Awareness and why is it important?

Cyber Security Awareness is becoming more alert of the cyber security threats and how they impact businesses and organisations. With more people working remotely and companies pivoting to a hybrid work model, it's important that the systems in use are capable of withstanding threats that may negatively impact a cloud-based system.

This is why people should be aware of the basics related to Cyber Security Awareness as it can help reduce the risk of cyber crimes happening within systems used by companies or organisations. Recovering from a cyber crime can be very expensive so employees need to be diligent in ensuring confidential information is not leaked.
