We recently attended Black Hat USA 2021 this year and Erich Kron, Security Awareness Advocate for KnowBe4, sat down with Cybersecurity Ventures to give words of advice for all organizations.

The major theme of Erich's imparting wisdom was, "Don't just worry about technology, you need to worry about humans." He also mentioned that nothing has changed in the last 30 years, and that the primary target will always be employees. Erich recommends that security teams need to take additional measures such as new-school security awareness training to educate your employees. 

The interview also discussed the growing threat of ransomware. Erich mentioned that  backups were the only source of cybersecurity protection before ransomware started targeting larger organizations. While he recommends better email gateways to reduce phishing attacks, educating humans on the latest cybersecurity threats should remain the top priority.
