Cybersecurity training is for everyone
Your employees need to be a human firewall for the systems and data your organization holds. As with many training topics, cybersecurity training is not a one-time event. The content needs to be reinforced and reviewed. Technology evolves quickly and so do the cybercriminals, so your training needs to evolve too.
Think about these cyber scenarios:
- An employee checks their personal email from their work computer in their office. They click on an unsafe email attachment that launches malware. On their work computer. Behind your firewall.
- A salesperson’s flight is delayed and they work on their corporate laptop in the frequent-flier lounge on the free wifi. They leave their laptop unattended and unlocked while they use the restroom.
- An executive goes out to lunch and they set their company-supplied mobile phone on the edge of the table in a busy restaurant and they don’t notice when the thief walks off with the phone.
All employees need to be trained in cybersecurity, not just your IT department. Different jobs have different risks. It’s much more than the obvious firewall and antivirus software, it’s part of risk management. Most successful attacks are the result of unintentional employee negligence. It’s critical to create policies, processes and training on cybersecurity. Train your employees to be vigilant. Protect your business and your assets. Help your employees protect their personal information.Let's Talk
