Cyber Security Awareness
WHAT IS SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING ?
Security awareness training is an ongoing education that provides employees relevant information and tests of their cyber-awareness by covering all aspects of data security and regulatory compliance. It is a proven way of changing risky employee IT behaviors that can lead to security compromises—including financial, intellectual property, customer trust, and other major data losses—and increases businesses’ resilience against attacks.
These may include how to avoid phishing and other types of social engineering cyberattacks, spot potential malware behaviors, report possible security threats, follow the company IT policies and best practices, and adhere to any applicable data privacy and compliance regulations.
WHY BUSINESSES NEED SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING ?
Although businesses may feel their employees would not be fooled by something like a phishing scam, cybercriminals still use this attack method because it continues to be successful. In fact, the Sri Lanka National Center for Cyber Security Shared Alert For 2021 Revealing that there is an increase in Phishing and Social Engineering attacks targeting the government and private sector organization in Sri Lanka.
With regular training for employees that includes phishing simulations, courses on IT and security best practices, and data protection and compliance training, businesses can significantly reduce risk, decrease infections, and related help desk costs, protect their reputation by experiencing fewer breaches, and secure their overall cyber security investment.
