Security Awareness & Training Program
Security awareness training involves providing formal cyber security education to your workforce about a variety of threats to information security and technology and your company’s policies and procedures for addressing them. Such training can take a variety of forms but is most often presented in an online or computer-based format.
WHY IS IT NEEDED?
Security awareness training is necessary because of the continuously changing threats around and the always-connected work environments we live in.
The common thread for some of the most significant threats today is people; your employees. Hackers know people can provide soft attack surfaces to make their exploits successful. This is why it’s essential to provide a security incident reporting process for your employees.
WHAT ARE THE BEST PRACTICES FOR SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING?
1. Focus on your greatest risks
This principle applies to whatever type of security training is provided. To determine what that training should be, assess the key risks that you’re trying to reduce in your business environment.. What do employees need to know and do to support the goal?
2. Make it resonate
The right training must then be delivered to the right people, based on their role and the kinds of data and access they’ll be exposed to in performing their work.
3. Having a Security awareness support team
Deploying a specialised support team that is dedicated to planning and managing awareness program is important. We have such experts who help your workforce with such needful awareness training.
