End-User Awareness Training is a proven educational approach for reducing risky employee behaviors that can lead to security compromises. By efficiently delivering relevant information, security awareness training transforms employees into a business's best line of defense. Employees learn about subjects like information security, social engineering, malware, and industry-specific compliance topics. Knowledge verification increases employee resilience to cyberattacks at home, on the move, and at the office.
As cybersecurity threats continue to increase and evolve, security awareness training helps businesses decrease help desk costs, protect their reputation, and secure their overall cybersecurity investment.
What is the weakest link in a security chain?
There's no denying that humans are the weakest link in cybersecurity. No matter how strong your technical defenses, such as firewall, IPS, or IDS, are, they can always be circumvented by a determined attacker if they can find a way to trick or coerce a member of your staff into giving them access.
According to the 2022 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report: 82% of all breaches involve a human element.
Businesses don’t have to become part of the statistics. If their employees are trained properly, companies can avoid many of the phishing scams being deployed in today’s ever-changing threat landscape. Well-trained users reduce these incidents, resulting in reduced costs related to lost productivity and system downtime.
