(B) NO

Explanation

Companies should conduct regular security training programmes so that the Tech team members and also members from the other team stay up to date about the latest security measures. This makes sure no one is using old methods and softwares that may lead to a breach of security.

Companies should record and discuss security breaches with members because it helps to point out the cause of the security breach and this information is passed to everyone. This notifies all other members about what led to the breach and what they should generally avoid.

Team members shouldn’t be encouraged to give up their passwords because it is their personal account and they have the right to keep it with themselves and not share with others.

The most important security breaches come from clicking on links inside dangerous and unsolicited emails. Employees should be notified to delete any emails which are not related to the company, that look suspicious and untrustworthy.
