Despite the significant effort that governance, compliance and security functions put into managing information security and data privacy, employees often remain the weakest link in an organisations’ defences. Yet they are also capable of being the strongest line of defence; indeed a basic level of understanding can prevent simple lapses in control that are often the root cause of breaches, and well informed and motivated employees are capable of creating a security environment that is based on commitment and not just ‘compliance’.
Employee communication has a critical role to play in achieving this. However this is not simply a matter of better ‘internal marketing’. Making both a rational and an emotional connection with employees and moving them along the “message received > understood > acted upon” continuum – requires a strategic approach.
We have a long track record of delivering information security communication programmes and campaigns at both a national and global level for clients with 1,000 to over 100,000 employees. We also developed the Th!nk Privacy brand which is used by leading organisations globally.
