Security Awareness is the process of making people aware of the risks to things of value and how to safeguard against those risks.
Why you need to know?
The ongoing and increasingly pernicious spate of cyber attacks – Ransomware, DDoS, Phishing, Bots, Trojans and targeted corporate espionage and malware, all underscore the need for heightened security and security awareness training. The executive suite is especially a rich target for attack.
What are typical objections to Security Awareness Training? What are our solutions?
It is too expensive. Response: It is insignificant to the cost of incurred due to cyber breaches. Costs of data loss, lost time, lost productivity, ransoms payment and other real infrastructure costs can be significant. Not to mentions the potential of liability costs, insurance deductibles costs (if you even have Cyber coverages), court costs and liability payments. Solutions: We offer a low cost, easily implemented training solution on a per user basis.
It takes too much time. Time is no argument to the potential risk and cost. Solution: Our training is done at the users workstation and typically takes less than an hour.
I know everything already: Sure you do. But does the CEO, does the secretary? What about your other co-workers. It is statistically a fact that over 80% of users will fail our Basic Cyber Security Awareness quiz. Drill down on the other risk you overlook and get training to day to mitigate your human risks.
