Make sure ALL your employees are protecting your business!
Your employee organization is your most critical line of defense when it comes to protecting your network environment and the data within it. Research consistently demonstrates that an ongoing program of security education, training and awareness significantly reduces the risk of a data breach, and should a data breach actually happen the damages incurred are significantly smaller. One such study pegs the reduction of breach risk at 70% when focus is placed on security awareness.
Social engineering, spear phishing, drive-by downloads, and watering holes are just some of the attack strategies that your employees face on a day-to-day basis. Help them recognize and avoid threats like these while ensuring that your business information—including sensitive customer data—is continuously secure.
A security awareness training program is also a cornerstone of every major compliance framework, including the PCI DSS and HIPAA. If compliance factors into your business in any way, then putting security awareness training in place should be one of your first steps.
Put your new training program in place quickly and inexpensively.

Ready to test your employees and their security awareness? We also offer mock-phishing campaigns to simulate a real email attack. When coupled with awareness training, these simulated attempts are used to test employee security comprehension and gauge how likely employees are to click malicious links and enter sensitive credentials. The results of our tests allow you to determine how vulnerable your employees – and your network – are to an attack and help reinforce best practices. The results may just surprise you!
