Data breaches, viruses, and other malware commonly make security headlines. An entire industry of network and computer security has evolved to mitigate these threats. However, most organizations overlook the weakest component of the security system – the human element. Criminals, and others with malicious intent, are exploiting this weakness via social engineering.
For many years employees have fallen victim to social engineering attacks, with phishing being one of the most common social threat vectors. Employee security awareness training is a key requirement for an effective information security defense. We have developed an information security awareness curriculum that is easy-to-understand and does not interfere with employees’ daily activities. Through our phishing simulation software and our phishing awareness training, your company will have an easy-to-use platform for employees.
Below are highlights of our cyber security awareness training program.
With our training platform each of your employees will have access to their own portal to take online courses at times convenient to them. This minimizes disruptions to employee productivity.
The training portal is mobile-friendly, allowing users to take training on any device.
What gets measured gets done. This saying holds true for security as well as other areas of business. Training is only beneficial if it gets completed in a timely fashion. Through real-time reporting, management can easily see the status of employee training.
The reports provide up-to-the-minute information so that reminders can be sent to employees who need to complete training.
Some employees need additional training. Through our phishing simulator, these employees are easily identified. Management has the option to automatically assign security training courses to employees who fail a phishing test. With auto-enrollment, the burden of assigning training is minimized. Employees who fail a phishing test are assigned security training courses and the PhishingBox system monitors their training progress.
This automatic enrollment works in conjunction with real-time reporting. No longer will you wonder if at-risk employees are receiving proper security training.
Our training platform includes many security awareness training courses. We provide different levels of training from general information security awareness training to more targeted phishing awareness training. These included courses address basic information security needs for all businesses.
If you need more in-depth training on specific topics, our course library provides access to additional content, including courses provided by other vendors.
Our system is flexible. Need to train employees on other topics? Use the platform to create your own courses or customize existing training. Include your own questions and answers. Easily create training material and assign these items to employees. Use the mix of standard and customized training that best suits your organization.
