The average cost to a business hit by a cyber attack is now $1 million. Three years ago, the White House estimated that cyber attacks will cost the US economy as much as $109 billion. But while organizations are spending millions on tech solutions, they're often overlooking their biggest risk: their employees. A study by the Ponemon Institute found 48% of breaches occur because of internal negligence.

Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way. Cybersecurity experts say one of the first investments should be employee training that centers around communication. This keynote is a wakeup call to leaders about how to reduce the threat without a massive expense.

Key Takeaways:
Understanding how employees can be converted from liabilities to assets in the battle against hackers
Knowledge about how to communicate cybersecurity threats
How to communicate cybersecurity to your board.
Understanding why employees are an organization's biggest cybersecurity risk
