Importance of Security Awareness Training

Posted by: Jo Love
Category: IT Managed Services, Tips and advice

We have recently shared posts on the growing threat of cyber-attacks, but one of the biggest challenges for management teams is implementing training for those who need it and ensuring employees are aware and engaged.

Today’s cyber criminals know the weakest part of an organisation’s cybersecurity is employees, with 90% of data breaches caused by human error. For users lacking security awareness, phishing attacks take advantage of this, accounting for up to a third of all data breaches. 

We recommend staff training to raise awareness, reduce the risk of cyber-attacks and ensure employees understand the importance of their role in the company’s data protection.

The training should enhance resilience against cyber threats and reduce human error and security risks. In turn, this will change employee mindset and behaviour while demonstrating compliance.
