Leveraging Employee Performance Management to Improve Cyber Hygiene
It is very hard to track and change an employee’s poor security decisions which is the leading cause of data breaches.
Simply offering generic training to employees to increase security awareness is ineffective and expensive.
Elevate Security's Security Reputation Score is a strong indicator of an employee’s cybersecurity hygiene. It gives a detailed view into their specific actions that are risky and areas where they are bad and good.
Enterprises can incorporate attainment of certain Security Reputation Score thresholds as an employee performance metric and tie that to specific incentive plans including annual performance reviews.
Using specific and quantitative measures along with targeted communications to the employees and their managers that drive improvement can be a game changer for large enterprises interested in strengthening their cyber defense.
Benefit / Impact
Enterprises can drive a measurable change in their human attack surface by embracing a quantitative approach to improving their Cyber Hygiene.
Tying Cyber Hygiene to an ongoing performance management process helps keep security “top of mind” for the entire employee population.
