Employee Security Training

Employee Security Training

Security Training Service (Simulated Phishing Attacks, Dark Web Assessment, SRA, EVA)

In many cases, the biggest cybersecurity risk to an organization is their own employees. We have heard the horror stories: someone clicking a link in a phishing email and infecting the whole network with ransomware, or accidentally wiring money to an imposter. And these are common examples, not the exception.

 

 

Without training, employees may be unable to properly identify and respond to security threats. Investing in employee cybersecurity training is a cost-effective way to reduce the risk profile of your organization. Employees that are well-aware of the typical attacks like Phishing and Social Engineering can help to protect your organization at the front-line.

The most effective training platforms include several components:

First, Security training, typically taken annually, is an important cornerstone for properly educating your employees. Security training should cover the most relevant threats against employees including phishing.

Second, simulated phishing attacks. These emails are sent against your own employees, are designed to help you assess your employee’s ability to identify phishing emails in the real world. Designed to look like actual real-world phishing scenarios, these reenforce the training materials by practical application.

Third, reporting and assessment. A training platform should provide feedback to management about how people are doing with training. It should help to give un understanding of how the training is reducing risk for the organization.

Fundamental features

There are other less fundamental features to consider as well. Dark Web Breach Assessments give visibility into leaked credentials are the dark web and raise awareness of the importance of strong and unique passwords.   Risk Assessments help management to quickly identify cybersecurity risks within an organization.

An effective security training implementation is an important component of a healthy IT management strategy.
