The correct answer to this question is B, Recognize. Security awareness is used by IT to help educate employees about any potential threats. The education can be formal training, individual responsibility, and measurements of efforts to protect against threats.

Before a threat can be beaten or prevented, it must be recognized. Both the IT team and employees can help with this step because recognizing a threat is the most important one. This is where the training comes in handy because it can give employees a guideline for how to report any risks that they may come across. Once recognized, IT can work to combat the threat.

The correct answer to this question is B. The first step in Security Awareness is being able to recognize a security threat. This can be done by making users aware of what a threat looks like, communicating regularly with all levels of the organization about current potential threats in a way that is understandable to all individuals, and ensuring all users understand the importance of identifying these threats.

This first line of protection is useful in proactively preventing security threats from reaching a system, making it less likely to be able to invade and cause problems. A training program is also helpful to tell users the procedure for reporting threats.
