You hear this term a lot and it’s something that has been harped about … But why is it so important?

The workplace has evolved throughout the years and technology has been a big party of that transformation. Adding in the risk of having someone come into your personal information and even company data means workplaces need to have more security.  Firewalls and anti-virus protections are simply not enough for hackers.  Hackers have been more creative with their tactics and scams that now everyone needs to be more alert!

Having the ability to know what is a threat and what is just your daily routine is important.

If you can’t recognize emails, links, or even phone calls, you can be potentially putting a company at risk for a data breach.
You always want to be alert with any email that is coming to you!

 

Having the ability to be one step above a hacker is challenging. One way is by having simulations will help you see the different kinds of attacks and how you can prevent your company from having a data breach and/or information deleted/stolen.

In 2020, there was an estimated amount of 1001 cases.

Data breaches are getting worse and users are not aware of the risks!

Employees are often the primary targets for hackers looking to get into critical business systems.
Rather than trying to breach a secure network or system through external means, it’s much easier for hackers to pretend to be authorized members of a company while they inflict their damage from the inside and do so undetected.

Sadly, many employees don’t even realize how important cybersecurity training really is for the organization they work for.
Even worse, according to a survey of over 4,500 employees, 22% of employees don’t feel like they should be obligated to keep their employer’s information safe.

Employees handle the information on an everyday basis, so a hacker will come to them first before anyone else. Internal attacks are easier.

Don’t wait to get cyber security training. You could not only protect the company, but you can even protect your own information!
