Five Tips for Creating a Privacy Aware Culture

  1. Create a campaign to educate your employees on your company privacy policy. (Don’t have one, join Wyoming’s Cybersecurity Competition for Small Businesses today and we will walk you through it! info@cyberwyoming.org or www.cyberwyoming.org/competition/)

2. Organize a privacy awareness training. Invite outside speakers and engage staff. (Don’t have a training? Tag us and we will share. info@cyberwyoming.org)

3. Help employees manage their individual privacy. Ask them, while they work at home, if they share their home wifi network with their kids’ x-boxes or the family Alexa. Teach them to create a guest account for these types of riskier devices. (Want to learn about common sense remote access policies for small businesses?

4. Add privacy to your employees toolboxes. Time to order (Star Awards & Promos does ours) company branded webcam covers. Discuss if your company wants to offer password management systems (June Working Webinar covers this exact topic, featured in Wyoming’s Cybersecurity Competition for Small Businesses www.cyberwyoming.org/competition/). Discuss if your company wants to offer VPN services to your employees (featured in February’s Working Webinar for Wyoming’s Cybersecurity Competition for Small Businesses www.cyberwyoming.org/competition/).

5. Make sure employees have an easy process to report any privacy concerns.
