Employees are your "weakest link" to cyber attacks

Because employees are the core of any business, they will be the main target for cyber criminals.  Making sure your people stay up-to-date with cyber security 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.

Turn your "weakest link" into your greatest strength

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 defense into its greatest strength.  

Train and Phish!

Security awareness training and phishing simulations go hand in hand.  Phishing has become very sophisticated and almost undetectable, as criminals have found ways to make their emails as realistic as possible.  Phishing simulations test employees on how they would respond to a real-life phishing attack.  When we perform a phishing simulation, we track employee responses, so we know who clicked on the email, who provided their password and who ignored the email.  Based on the results, we can send interactive educational videos to the most susceptible users.  These easy-to- understand, short and engaging training videos include an online quiz to verify the employee's retention of the training content.  We also track the training tests to know who has completed the training.  Training can be delivered regularly, to reinforce the importance of every employee's role in protecting your business.

Benefits of Training & Awareness Campaigns

Besides educating your employees and making them a key part of your cyber defense plans, there are other benefits gained from cyber training and awareness campaigns.  If you have purchased cyber insurance for your business, you can often get reduced rates for ongoing employee cyber training.  If you are a healthcare provider, cyber security training for your employees is another key step in improving your HIPAA IT Security requirements.
