Online Security Awareness Training for Employees

Comprehensive Online Training

Cyber-threats are not only IT-related problems anymore.   Since almost every employee in an organization is doing part of the job online (through e-mails, social media, etc.), employees who are unaware of the risks can easily invite a cyber-attack which can cost a company a lot of money.  

PhishingBox has developed a comprehensive online security awareness program for employees.  This program will help educate your employees by providing simple techniques for protecting company information assets.   This program is applicable to all employees in a company.  In the program, we cover all the threats to which companies are exposed.

Security awareness is important.  That’s not a new concept to anyone in IT or even employees who have had to complete some levels of security awareness training.  With PhishingBox, you can ensure your security awareness training program is meeting industry standards.  

Security awareness training is an education process that teaches employees about cybersecurity, IT best practices and even regulatory compliance.  Our PhishingBox security awareness training for employees includes how to avoid phishing and other types of social engineering cyber-attacks, spot potential malware behaviors, report possible security threats, follow company IT policies and best practices and adhere to any applicable data privacy and compliance regulations.

The purpose of implementing a strong, thorough security awareness program is not to simply satisfy compliance needs.  The true purpose of a solid security awareness program is to prevent sensitive data loss and the pain and anguish that accompany a breach.  To gauge the effectiveness of a security awareness training program, data tracking must be tracked from year to year and the program is updated and it evolves.

The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations report revealed that over 90% of successful security breaches start with phishing.  Here are some compelling  statistics:

  • 43% of all cyber-attacks are aimed at small and medium sized businesses
  • Over 85% of all e-mail attachments are harmful
  • 91% of attacks are launched from a phishing attack
  • Over 24,000 new malicious apps are removed from The App Store daily
  • Ransomware is up 180% from 2018
  • Every 13.28 seconds a business somewhere is hit with ransomware 
 

Many organizations provide security awareness training only at the time of hire or as a part of an annual update exercise.  To be effective, security training must be provided in small, digestible units designed to engage the target group of employees.  Training should be an ongoing experience geared toward changing employees’ behavior and attitude.  Walk them through the signs of an attack and encourage them to contact an IT specialist right away if something seems suspicious.  It is also recommended that security leaders regularly review employee behavior after the training to see if the lesson is learned.

Turn your employees into a strong line of defense against today’s cyber-attacks with our PhishingBox security awareness training program.  Our cybersecurity training for employees is personalized to individuals’ needs, efficient for end users to complete and effective at changing behaviors and reducing risk at every level of your organization.

No business is ever completely safe from cybercrime.  Hackers find more sophisticated ways to break into systems, steal data and disguise their threats to take advantage of unsuspecting businesses.  How does a business or organization keep up with so many security challenges?  Turn to the cybersecurity experts at PhishingBox.
