In our last blog, we talked about the importance of cybersecurity training for your employees. We believe that training is a simple but crucial way to help ensure your business is well-protected against cyberthreats. Because of this, we offer a program that is organized and effective in assessing and managing evolving cyberthreats that could put your business at risk.
We even use this tool to train and equip our own team!
Several years ago, we offered in-person employee training sessions. As technology and our clients’ needs evolved, we moved away from this approach. Studies show that shorter “micro” trainings is more effective and have a higher retention rate. Our current training tool is a program we license and implement for our clients.
It focuses primarily on phishing, as such potentially harmful email assaults are some of the biggest threats to our clients and their employees. Our training tool sends out fabricated scam emails to “test” how likely someone is to click on corrupted links or download suspect files, or respond with sensitive information. Each employee gets different messages on different days to ensure the highest level of authenticity. Additionally, we can customize this tool to meet each of our client’s specific business size, industry, and other unique needs.
We use the data that this training tool gathers to identify security gaps and other related weaknesses. Altogether, this program provides an opportunity for efficient and practical training that meets each client’s specific needs.
The biggest reason businesses opt out of this employee training tool is because it comes at a cost. While the tool we use is exceptionally valuable, it’s actually very inexpensive. In fact, the cost is next to nothing on a per user/per day basis. And, when you compare that price to the cost of a data breach from one accidental click, the training tool can pay for itself several times over.
It’s like insurance. You don’t think you need it until you regret not having it.
We chose this training method because it’s accurate and cost-efficient for our clients. It also provides real-time results that help accurately identify and implement tools that will make your business more secure. Hands down, it’s more effective than classroom training, without the extra hours in that classroom setting.
To reiterate our point, we want your business to be set up for success and equipped to thrive. While our training tools are optional for both current and new clients, we cannot stress the value enough. For a small price, you can educate your employees and protect your business from prevalent -- but avoidable -- phishing attacks and other cyberthreats.
