Even with a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy and the right cybersecurity tools, people are often the weakest link in any organisation’s InfoSec posture.
This is generally due to a lack of understanding of how they play a critical part in protecting your company’s networks, data and other information assets.
In today’s competitive environment, successful organisations respond quickly to changing circumstances by changing themselves – effectively and decisively. This includes their employees.
What is Security Awareness Training?
Security Awareness training is the formal process for ensuring your employees understand the dangers of cybersecurity attacks, and how to prevent them.
As well as mitigating the threat, employees should know who to turn to in the case of a suspected cyber or phishing attack and what they should and should not do to avoid exposing their organisation.
What are the benefits of Security Awareness Training?
As well as reducing the risk of a security breach via the weakest link in the chain, security awareness training instils proper behaviour in your employees, the people who come into contact with your organisations’ data and IP.
By having regular security awareness training and ensuring new starters are properly briefed from day 1, you will be able to meet any regulatory and compliance requirements, and maintain your accreditations.
Finally, by taking a ‘prevention is better than cure’ approach to your cybersecurity and information security posture, you are protecting your brand and reputation, and the resulting negative media attention.
