Cybersecurity Awareness Training Program
Our program aims to raise awareness of the risks to cyberspace. Our training provides each employee with the basics of Cybersecurity needed, the knowledge to identify computer threats and prevent them, understand and apply best practices to secure their use of computer tools.
Why provide cybersecurity awareness training to employees?
The argument for training employees in cybersecurity is simple: if employees do not recognize a security threat, how can they avoid, report or remove it? They certainly won't be able to.
Your employees need cybersecurity training to protect themselves and your business from cyberattacks. By educating employees about security threats, threat presentation and procedures when a threat is identified, you strengthen the most vulnerable links in the chain.
"Raising awareness to reduce risk
that weigh on your Information System"
What safety awareness topics should be included in training your employees?
Different forms of cybersecurity threats
In order for employees to detect and prevent security breaches, they need basic training on the different ways in which cybersecurity threats may arise. For the most part, this includes spam, phishing, malware and ransomware and social engineering
Our cybersecurity training helps employees identify unwanted content that may hide malware. It is important to explain that spam is not only found in emails, but also in social media messages and invitations. For example, an "invitation to connect" from LinkedIn may carry a virus.
The importance of password security
Today, people need passwords to unlock their devices, to log into their accounts and for certain work-related applications. That's a lot to remember. Many people tend to set generic passwords that are easy to solve. That's why our cybersecurity awareness training helps employees understand the importance of passwords and shows employees how to define strong passwords that incorporate an easy-to-remember combination of letters, numbers and symbols.
Policies for e-mail, the Internet and social networks
Employees' email and browsing habits can leave a company largely open to malware, which can attack the company's applications and social accounts, and even steal information or even money. It is therefore essential that your company's employees understand the policies and guidelines for the use of e-mail, the Internet and social media.
Our cybersecurity training includes policies on the types of links you can click on and what shouldn't. The training also describes the rules for browsing the Internet and using social media on the company's devices, as well as the use of the company's email addresses.
Protecting the company's data
Each company has its own data protection policies, but don't assume that all employees are aware of or understand these policies. Our information security awareness training for new employees explains the regulatory and legal obligations of data protection. Next, we offer regular refresher courses so that all employees are up to date on data protection rules and policies.
How to identify and report cybersecurity threats
Employees are your eyes and ears on the ground. Every device they use, the emails they receive and the programs they open may contain clues about a hidden virus, a phishing scam or password hacking. But, to really mobilize your employees as a force against attacks, you'll need cybersecurity awareness training for all employees.
First, our training helps employees become aware of unexplained errors, unwanted content and legitimate antivirus warnings. Then employees are informed of the process to be followed to report alerts, as well as the right people to talk to in case of suspected cyberattack.
How can I foster a workplace that allows my employees to develop the skills they need to deal with cyber threats?
To this question, our experts answer you in 6 steps:
1. Established a help and counselling centre where employees can answer all their cybersecurity questions, as well as their doubts about a specific situation, in order to get an expert response.
2. Setting up an alert system to inform all employees of a potential threat in progress.
3. Cybersecurity training and awareness conferences.
4. Regular testing campaigns to determine your employees' level of awareness
5. Creating a competition (tournament with prizes) between employees on cybersecurity to motivate them.
6. Writing a reference manual that will be available to all your employees on best practices and required prevention measures.
