Organizations are relying more heavily on innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, and cloud computing to operate more effectively and improve work processes. However, increasing dependence on technology creates a greater need to protect the organization against potential IT compromises. Many times the weakest links of security are the employees/users. Therefore, employee education and reinforced training are critical to an organization’s IT security plan. Cyber security in its broadest sense continues to have a pervasive impact on organizations and their preparedness from a short and longer-term going concern and sustainability perspective.
