Hikvision Insights to Protect Yourself from Vulnerabilities


The article, “New report provides a peek behind the curtain on cybersecurity cultures,” details attitudes towards security concerns, cyber threats and vulnerabilities.

The “Security Culture Report” was provided by research firm KnowBe4, that surveyed professionals across more than 17 industries, aiming to gather information about how they performed over cybersecurity areas such as compliance, responsibility and communications.

The survey showed that banking, financial services and insurance were performing the best, as these industries are accustomed to mitigating risk. Worst performers using the study’s metrics included education.

“COVID-19 has strained education to the breaking point as we try to figure out what this next school year looks like and so there is a blend of technology that is having to be used that’s never been used before and when you look at where education is in the security culture rankings, they’re dead last in everything,” said KnowBe4 strategy officer, Perry Carpenter, in the article.
