Description: The biggest threats to a company’s cybersecurity are poor security practices by its own employees. Historically, hackers have exploited software flaws to break into computers and computer networks. However, in recent years effective anti-virus and transaction monitoring software, coupled with IT personnel assigned to maintain up-to-date software patches, have made individual employees some of the weakest security links.
