Why Have Cyber Security User Awareness Training in Your Organisation?
- Over 90% of cyber security incidents are caused by lack of staff awareness.
- Cyber security user awareness training helps get everyone in an organization on the same page, reduces risks and incidents, and helps the entire workforce protect their organisation and themselves.
- Assess the level of human cyber security risk in your business, mitigate the risk where found and meet your compliance obligations.
There was a time when cyber security training was only seen in large corporate environments or specific industry verticals like banking and financial services. That’s because, for many years, only larger corporate entities were likely to be targeted by serious cyber crime. Today, the cyber crime landscape has changed dramatically and become so industrialised, that every business is regularly subject to phishing email attacks that lead to fraud or ransomware incidents.
The reason for this is simple, most of these organisations are much easier targets, as they are far less likely to have sophisticated cyber security technology in place, and are even more unlikely to have ongoing cyber security training for their staff in place. The point of cyber security training is to equip employees with the knowledge they need to combat these threats.
To ensure that our clients are as safe as possible from the threats of phishing attacks, DNA IT have partnered with the class-leading cyber security awareness training platform, Cyber Risk Aware, to deliver a fully managed continuous program of cyber security awareness training that also includes regular phishing attack simulations. Our solution can even provide real time intervention to ensure that users are kept safe from breaching company security guidelines and endangering the business.
A properly structured approach can dramatically improve your workforce awareness their attitude and consequentially dramatically reduce your risk profile.
