Cybersecurity Awareness Training – Designed To Protect Against Human Error
Cyber Attacks are on the Rise
SECNAP realizes that employees are the core of any business and for this reason, they are often the main target during a cyber attack. Making sure your employees stay up-to-date with cybersecurity knowledge and teaching them to recognize threats, is imperative to the security of your business. The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and so should your approach to defense.
“90% of breaches are caused by human error!”*
-Willis Towers Watson
Cybercriminals are always on the hunt for vulnerabilities and can often be found within your employees. Through automated campaigns and often targeted socially engineered attacks, hackers will attempt to get users to grant them access to credentials, data, and even large sums of money.
Training and Phishing Simulations
Trained and aware employees are critical to securing an organization, and an effective, ongoing internal security awareness program can help reduce your company’s vulnerability, turning the “weakest link” in your cyber defenses into its greatest strength. Security awareness training and phishing simulations go hand in hand.
Email Phishing is when a hacker fraudulently attempts to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity. Phishing has become harder to detect as criminals have found ways to make their emails as realistic as possible. These emails can be designed to come from coworkers, banks, and email providers.
Phishing simulations test employees on how they would respond to a real-life phishing attack. We can send these mock attacks at staggered times which helps avoid the “prairie dog effect” where employees warn one another of the email. We’ll track which employee behaviors and report on which employees ignored, clicked, or completed the objected of the simulated attack.
Measure and Track
Your regular Security Threat Report will demonstrate the overall cybersecurity posture of your organization, including credential compromises in the dark web, combined with employee phishing and training campaign results.
Once a gap is detected, we’ll deliver interactive educational videos to the most susceptible users. These easy-to-understand, short, and visually engaging training videos include an online quiz to verify the employee’s retention of the training content. Training can be delivered regularly, reinforcing the importance of every employee’s role in protecting your business.
We can send scheduled phishing campaigns, including customized messages to fit each group or department, randomly during a specified period. With an ever-changing threat, it is important that your employees are exposed to all the latest phishing traps set by criminals.
It is not always disgruntled workers and corporate spies who are a threat. Often, it is the non-malicious, uninformed employee. SECNAP’s easy-to-understand, short, and visually engaging training videos end with an online quiz to verify the employee’s retention of the training content.
Benefits of an Ongoing Security Awareness Program
- Cyber attacks are on the rise; particularly among small and mid-sized businesses.
- You may have the most up-to-date and strongest security systems in place, but this will be a wasted investment if you don’t also train and test your staff.
- Threats are ever-evolving and become more sophisticated and harder to detect. Regular training on the latest criminal tactics will help mitigate risk.
In the face of rising cyber threats, especially for SMBs and mid-market enterprises, our ongoing security awareness program is your shield against the ever-evolving landscape of cybercrime. Even the most advanced security systems could be rendered ineffective without a well-trained and vigilant workforce.
