Security Awareness Training

Why Security Awareness Training is Essential

Security threats have multiplied dramatically, and hackers have become more and more sophisticated. Organizations are under attack from all directions as cyber crime has become big business. While many organizations continue to invest in cyber protection technologies and controls, cyber leaders and organizations now recognize that security infrastructure and software controls are not the sole answer. Technology will not be successful without cybersecurity awareness training that engages end users and provides sustained behavior change. After all, your workforce is your last line of defense against hackers and should be your strongest.

Benefits of Security Awareness Training

Employee security awareness training helps to create a company culture that values secure practices. Training coupled with rewards and recognition is a must. This provides employees with the information and also the motivation needed to help keep the company safe. Your Employees are your most effective security resource.

Employees usually have good intentions, but often don’t know the best security practices for certain situations. Training gives them standards and sets expectations for what they should do. For example, what to do when selecting strong passwords or preventing an unauthorized visitor from entering the office.

Effective training keeps employees from making mistakes that take time and money to fix. Data breaches can result in costly fines, and also irreparable reputation damage and lost business. Also, any security issue has to be handled by IT resources who’s time is often expensive and better spent improving productivity.
