Security Awareness Training
Regular training for employees means you are better positioned to prevent attacks and reduce breaches.
Protect your business from the risks of cyber-attacks by training everyone from the CEO to the shop floor staff
Computer security is the overarching way we protect computing systems and the data that they store or access. While managing the security of data and systems is a complex mission, one clear thing is that security training is a vital element.
Businesses need security training to ensure risks are mitigated. Good security training can help ensure all employees of the organization and, where relevant, contractors receive appropriate awareness education and training and regular updates in organizational policies and procedures as applicable for their job function.
Mitigate against internal risk: Employees can often be the source of data breaches. Even though most employees are aware of the dangers of apps and emails, cybercriminals still use this attack method because it continues to be successful. Attacks are also on the rise as more employees are working from home – and will be for the near future. Use our security training to mitigate these internal risks.
Limit data breaches: With regular training for employees that includes phishing simulations, courses on IT and security best practices, and data protection, businesses can significantly reduce risk, protect their reputation by experiencing fewer breaches, and secure their overall cybersecurity investment.
Ongoing education: Security training provides the best ongoing education, providing relevant information and testing your cyber-awareness.
Anyone can become the victim of a phishing attack, even the CEO. Therefore, ongoing security training is the key to preventing attacks.
It’s very easy to assume that everyone understands the risks and is equipped to handle new and emerging technologies. With ongoing security training, you will always be ahead of the game when it comes to IT security.
Ideally, you want some baseline assessments - you can’t know how well your program is working unless you know your starting point. Aim for full participation and open communication whilst also implementing ongoing tracking and reporting.
Ideally, security training will be rolled out twice a year to all staff and relevant team members. This works well with most businesses and offers a chance for up to date training, understanding of new technologies, and hopeful reminders of even the old IT safety means.
The new platform is continually kept up to date with categorisation and profiling of new threats and classification of existing traffic. Being able to focus on what is actually happening rather than reacting to close a new threat has saved a lot of time. Being able to see where our compliance was not 100%, we were able to act early and educate our people on the dangers and implications of not following our policies. This has helped us pro-actively understand patterns and educate our staff about the risks of the Internet before we have a serious incident.
