Human Firewall Training

Employee Cybersecurity Training

Given the high occurrence of cyber security attacks through phishing, one of the most critical elements, if not the most, to resist attack is for businesses to build a human firewall to withstand these attacks. A human firewall is built upon the commitment of employees to follow the guidelines of best practices to prevent as well as report any data breach or suspicious activity. Human firewall training requires an education of employees to understand these threats, the signs of these threats and ongoing training to assure that employees remain diligent to cyber security threats in order to secure your company’s network.

At PhishingBox, founded in 2005 in Lexington, Kentucky, we are a proven cybersecurity training company that is working with clients around the world to provide human firewall training that is sparing companies the absolute threat of cyber security breaches. PhishingBox methodology involves a customized solution for your company, no matter how large or small your company might be. Our clients value the work PhishingBox does to design human firewall training with phishing emails that test employees on an ongoing basis to determine the location of weak links in the chain, employees who need more training on recognizing cyber security threats to your business. Nearly 90% of data breaches occur when an employee fails to recognize the signs of phishing and opens an email that creates a pathway into your network for cyber security attacks. It is simple for almost any employee to fall prey to such attacks – and with professional human firewall training, well-trained employees will be your best line of defense.

Human firewall training is successfully done with the assistance of PhishingBox, a cyber security training partner that will provide the tools you need to build your human firewall through employee training. Cyber security phishing has become a successful methodology employed by hackers around the world. Their phishing emails are well done, they most often relate directly to the core business of your company and, to the untrained eye, they appear legitimate.

  • Include every one, every department. The human firewall training will get talked about and no one should feel left out. Nor should they be left out.
  • Keep it personal. Employees will understand that maintaining the human firewall requires everyone to participate and that PhishingBox training needs to be lived out in practice, that this behavior becomes routine for everyone.
  • Monitor your employees’ follow through with vigilance. Old habits are hard to break, new habits take time to grow roots.
