08 Feb Cyber Security Awareness Training.
Awareness is the first step in rolling out a Cyber Security Strategy
A company is as good as its people. That is a fact. Investing in skills and knowledge should always be high on every Human Resources manager’s agenda.
Cybergate's Cyber Security Awareness Training is a hands-on approach which helps organisations proactively address the weakest link in cyber security, humans.
Cyber Security is becoming increasingly prevalent with security breaches making the headlines on a daily basis – taking cyber security seriously is not an option any longer. Apart from investing in phishing as a service, cloud security vulnerability assessments and penetration testing of systems, organisations are increasingly investing in their employees to reduce the risk of cyber attacks fuelled by human error and/or lack of awareness and know-how.
When analysing past cyber attacks, most of the time, cyber criminals trick employees to click on links or download malicious files which would grant them access to sensitive data inside the company’s internal environment. This weakness in the chain makes it evident that your workforce needs to be made aware of cyber threats, repercussions of cyber attacks and the Dos and Don’ts related to cyber security in general.
