Ronald HallWritten Assignment 2March 3, 2020Critical Information LiteracyDr. Pamela AllenWhy should companies increase cybersecurity awareness among their employees? How can they do this? For the last 16 years and 6 months I have been enlisted in the United States Navy. While the Navy may not be a company, in many ways we operate as if we were one. One of these ways is cybersecurity. With the exception of the first few years, when I was in training, Ihave done annual training on cybersecurity. This training has been both computer-based and classroom style training. All training has been conducted with the same goal: prevent the release of classified information, thereby protecting national assets.Companies should raise the level of knowledge of their employees on the subject of cybersecurity to prevent the loss of: Personal Identifiable Information (PII), information deemedto be classified, and information that could be damaging to the company.
