A survey of government information technology (IT) professionals finds that training to prevent cybersecurity threats is an investment priority for more than 60% of federal civilian and defense/military organizations.
On that note, the Fort Meade Alliance (FMA) cybersecurity survey outlines recent findings below.
- Almost 70% of government IT decisionmakers agree that end users are aware of agency security policies, yet lack of training is considered an obstacle to preventing cyberthreats by about one-third of survey respondents.
- Employee training is among the top investment priorities for prevention of insider threats.
- Employee training is a significantly higher investment priority for defense agencies, compared with their civilian counterparts.
