I think they should also consider the health of their Cybersecurity staff. Find out how they are doing. Are they satisfied with their roles, career, pay etc. Not to be held hostage, of course but it does matter. When the people you want to protect aren't happy, you are in a bad place. They will leave, leaving a vacuum and they also have important information they are leaving with. Don't forget that side of the human interaction.

To take tip #1 a step further, another effective method is to offer employees training on security in general -- i.e., for their personal lives, impacting such things as their banking, their personal social media accounts, etc.  Give them, as a benefit, training on how they can secure their personal lives.

Then, it's easy from there to demonstrate how that can and should be used professionally, at work.  And if they're already doing it in their personal lives, they'll be that much more likely to do it in the professional lives.
