Make sure people have a way to report security issues

It’s everyone’s job to protect the workplace and the organization from the impacts of a cyber security incident. This includes economic, legal, reputational, or even physical harms that could occur from theft, breach, ransomware, denial of service, or other kinds of attacks.

Regardless of how minor an anomaly might seem, it’s important to report incidents to the company’s security team so they can investigate possible risks. That team is of course responsible for establishing security policies and protocols for the organization and making sure that all employees are aware of them.

But the security team can’t be everywhere. That’s why it’s critical for all employees to act as the eyes and ears of the organization and report incidents if they occur.
