An enterprise should be always ready for any targeted or rogue attacks hence a defence in layers is required , firewall, network layer ATP (sandboxing), Email with zero day attack intelligence, device controls, EDR and EPP , WAF for web servers and an honeypot to trap and known the threat vectors for their organization.

Awareness Awareness and Awareness, the Problem is the Head.
True story, issues take place on the senior lvl (Open USB Port, no Clean Desk Policy, etc.)
Afterwards "we" (the working lvl) can talk about trainings and SW/HW Solutions.

Some sort of taking care for the company like taking care for your family :)
