Quiz: How Likely Are You to Fall Victim to a Data Breach?

Hackers targeting federal agencies are a serious threat to keeping the government's information safe, but careless mistakes by employees can be just as dangerous. The insider threat is a growing challenge and agencies are working to constantly train their workers on best practices both online and offline when it comes to information sharing and handling.

The way you use your computer and passwords or divulge and share sensitive information could jeopardize not only your personal data but put your agency's at risk. How well do you know cybersecurity? Could you be the next insider threat? Or do you know enough to safeguard yourself and your workplace? Use Nextgov's Cyber Assessment Tool to find out whether you're cyber savvy enough or if you need to take additional measures to protect yourself.
