Risk and insurance reporting that the rise of cybercrime comes at an astronomical price: Cybersecurity Ventures predicts it will cost the entire world 9.5 trillion dollars in 2024.

Patrick Thielen, global head of cybersecurity at Liberty Mutual, emphasized that cybercriminals are simply waiting for an opportunity to strike. “Opportunistic attacks apply to everyone, from individuals and families, from small and micro businesses to large enterprises, across all industries and geographies. »

Thielen believes it is imperative to foster a healthy cybersecurity culture to ensure best practices are prioritized from the top down. “It starts with the tableby asking, “What type of culture do we want our organization to have” from a cybersecurity perspective? “, did he declare.

“Start there and make everyone responsible and committed to security… You can invest billions of dollars in security, but you’re still not 100% safe, because people aren’t perfect and can be tricked or coerced into doing things. » Thielen added. This makes education an even more crucial element of top-notch security.

Cybersecurity Ventures recently released its ‘10 Security Awareness Training Companies to Watch in 2024” in Cybercrime Magazine. These providers help insurance companies and businesses across all sectors train their employees in cyber defense.
