A check of the existing situation to gain a good overview and understanding of how aware the employees are of the risks of cyber security, which best practices and measures are currently in place and what is communicated in which way internally on this subject.

The Human Factor, i.e. the role played by the entire workforce
In actual fact most security breaches can be traced back to employees and are either caused by accidental misuse, lack of information or simple inexperience; they fall victim to hackers who deliberately target such weak points to access IT systems or data banks.
For this reason, it is vital to make your employees aware of their role in the protection of information.
