Internal IT Security Awareness Training for Employees
When it comes to the circulation of important data and other business-critical information, your employees are more often than not the weakest link for network security. Whether it stems from human error or blatant deception, SMBs and enterprises are more vulnerable to cyber security leaks and attacks with every new staff member added to the team. While we don't want to think about employees often being responsible for compromised IT security, it's a simple fact.
To better protect your business from the many potential vulnerabilities, a comprehensive security awareness training program is the ideal solution. With completely standardized and successful IT security awareness training in place, you can better ensure that day-to-day employee activities are done safely and that other potential risks are minimized.
Training employees with a proven security awareness program is the only way to reduce the rate of employee error that leads to data leaks and security breaches. In a cyber security study it was found that of the 887 companies spread across 30 countries surveyed, "employee error” caused 30 percent of data breaches in the previous year.
Even the most trustworthy and careful of employees can cause potential harm to your business without a proper security awareness training program in place.
