So, you want to launch cybersecurity awareness training in your workplace.
Good thinking! Criminals are targeting organizations of all sizes for fraud, malware, and other nefarious activities. Endpoint, network, application and cloud security are critical for doing business in 2021 – but technology is not enough.
The Canadian Center for Cybersecurity (CCCS), NIST, cybersecurity insurance policies, and more highlight the need for user training because in addition to criminals exploiting vulnerabilities in technology, they exploit people’s behaviour and emotions.
People aren’t born knowing things like password best practices or phishing red flags. People also get busy and distracted. A cybersecurity awareness training program is an excellent way to teach employees to recognize, avoid and report threats, reducing cyber risk for your organization.
