This Cyber Security Awareness and Prevention course will teach you how to keep your network safe, how to stay safe on the internet, how to keep your email safe, how to use anti-virus software and much more. You will walk away from this training with a level of understanding that will let you apply the proper amount of digital protection to your home or office computer systems.
From ransomware and phishing to identity fraud and data breaches, cyber security threats are frequent and need to be addressed. Moreover, with humans being the weakest link in information security, organizations need to foster a culture of data protection, one where employees readily understand what types of threats are common, and the impact they can have on the organization as a whole. This is where security awareness consulting plays a major role in helping to educate employees about potential risks, instill proper cyber security processes and train employees on what to do (and who to contact) in the event of a security threat.
Most people are at least semi-aware that identity theft and network hacks are possible, and are reasonably good at not intentionally downloading malicious code or clicking dubious links. It is also common for organizations to implement firewalls, comprehensive IT defense systems and IT policies and protocols to keep themselves safe from online threats. So how do smart organizations still get hacked?
Cyber security awareness consulting can help your employees understand how they can be easily targeted by cyber crime, and the steps they can take in the event that they fall victim. This goes beyond simply being conscious of potential threats, but provides employees with the hands-on knowledge of how cyber crime works, what internal prevention policies are and why they exist, and what is expected of them moving forward. It also includes consulting on nearly every aspect of cyber security threat mitigation, including:
Social engineering techniques (malware, phishing, etc.)
Acceptable use of information
Secure data disposal techniques
Data encryption and password management
Data protection protocol
Firewall configuration and management
Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)
Incident Response procedure
Cyber security awareness is the combination of both knowing and doing something to protect a business’s information assets. When an enterprise’s employees are cyber security aware, it means they understand what cyber threats are, the potential impact a cyber-attack will have on their business and the steps required to reduce risk and prevent cyber-crime infiltrating their online workspace.
Creating a culture around cyber security awareness in the workplace doesn’t mean that you’ll be completely eradicating the risk of data theft or cyber-crime to your business. Malware has burgeoned, becoming more and more sophisticated as each new strand is developed, and we expect to see the evolution and growth of cyber-threats and malware to proliferate. It was reported that 123 new strains of malware were found everyday in 2005.
During that year, 10,000 of those threats were new strains of malware. 11 years later, research had shown that every second, four new strains of malicious malware were discovered in Q3 of 2016 – it’s crucial to highlight that these were the strains that cyber security companies had found and identified. As new strains of malware grow, enterprises need to ensure that they’re implementing the appropriate security measures, educating their employees and eliminating any weaknesses that make them vulnerable to an attack. Human error is an egregious exploit that can lead to fines and severe business damage.
