Why You Need Security Awareness Training
Why Security Awareness Training? Ransomware, That’s Why. Old school Security Awareness Training doesn’t hack it anymore. Today, your employees are frequently exposed to sophisticated phishing and ransomware attacks.
People are one of your most valuable assets, and one of your biggest security risks. Ransomware is all over the news and everyone knows how devastating it can be – but do you know if your employees can distinguish a real email from a phishing email? Trend Micro reported that 91% of successful data breaches started with a spear phishing attack – an email scam targeted towards a specific individual or business, intended to steal data for malicious purposes, or to install malware on a user’s computer. It only takes one wrong click and many times, the most vulnerable employees are targeted.
Keeping your employees educated on security is so important and that’s why we’ve partnered with KnowBe4, the market leader for security awareness training and simulated phishing tests. KnowBe4 is recognized by industry analyst Gartner and is in the Top 20 training companies in the world.
In addition to the on-demand training, the program also lets you send simulated emails to phish your own users. You can identify the individuals who require additional training – and maintain awareness throughout your organization. The program comes with hundreds of email templates to choose from so you can continually send out emails to keep your employees alert.
