What are some common mistakes made by business owners when implementing cybersecurity measures?

The largest root-cause for poor cybersecurity in an organization is a lack of upfront leadership buy-in and identified roles for cybersecurity.  Without top-down buy-in, cybersecurity simply cannot be effective. Another erroneous mindset is that “I’m in the cloud, so I have nothing to secure”.  This couldn’t be farther from the truth!  While most cloud applications and environments come with security options, it’s every individual organization’s responsibility to actually configure these options.  Additionally, it’s quite easy for hackers to take over online accounts with phishing and brute force attempts.  So, every online workflow should be protected by multi-factor authentication.
