Young Employees Attitude to Cybercrime is Different

Young Employees Attitude to Cybercrime is Different

It is essential to prioritise cybersecurity training for your team's attitude to cybercrime, particularly if you have employees aged between 16 and 19.

A recent study shows that various concerning online behaviors have become normalised among many youths, with much of this behavior being illegal.

It should be noted that this does not refer to serious cybercrimes like ransomware attacks or data theft.

One in three 16 to 19-year-olds confess to digital piracy, and a quarter have engaged in online tracking or trolling of someone.

While most of these behaviors may not have a direct impact on your business, they have become so prevalent that many young people see them as a normal part of daily life.

This is not an ideal attitude for them to bring into the workplace.

Informal software piracy or unauthorised downloads on work devices could lead to a significant security breach.

The solution is straightforward: Provide regular cybersecurity training to all your employees.

The training should:

  • Emphasise the consequences of negative online behavior and the risk of security breaches.
  • Assist in comprehending how this type of behavior can harm individuals and your business.
  • Inform all employees of the scams and attacks that your business is susceptible to and their role in maintaining security.
  • Ensure that anyone caught engaging in this behavior understands the complexity of the situation.
