Cybersecurity Awareness Training In Dallas & Fort Worth
We provide training to ensure your team can recognize and resist hacking attempts.
- Do you handle sensitive or proprietary information?
- Does your business transfer or store confidential information online?
- Do you need to educate your staff to recognize cyber threats?
Training is an essential process for staff in any business. It helps keep all your employees on the same page and arms them with the skills and knowledge they require to perform their duties effectively. Surprisingly, many businesses feel that providing cybersecurity awareness training for their IT teams is sufficient to secure their operations. However, this is not enough — you need to make your entire team aware of the various threat vectors that exist, from ransomware to data breaches. Training will keep members of your team from making simple mistakes that threaten the security of your business.
Why Cybersecurity Awareness Training Is Essential for the Success of Your Business
When your team is uninformed about cyber attackers’ enormous capabilities, a moment of carelessness could cost you. Fortune estimates that cyber-attacks cost companies more than $400 billion per year in the US alone. For this reason, cybersecurity awareness training is just as important as firewalls, anti-virus software, and email scammers. The cost of good cybersecurity awareness training is worth the money if it helps you stop even a single attack. Some of the benefits of training are:
- Increased security
- Savings on the costs of restoring data
- More effective use of cybersecurity measures
- Empowering your workforce
- Retaining customer trust
What Cybersecurity Awareness Training Do We Provide?
A lot of damage could result from a simple action like an employee checking work email on their smartphone when connected to a public Wi-Fi network. However, if you can make everyone in your organization recognize risky behavior, you can lower the chances of a breach. We offer the following as part of our comprehensive cybersecurity awareness training:
Comprehensive Training Sessions
Our training team understands that everyone has different learning styles, so we have a cybersecurity training program that has a mix of various activities and learning formats and avoids legal and technical jargon. We bear in mind that your team works across a range of professional disciplines and departments and have possibly never encountered many of the technical aspects of cybersecurity. We keep things simple by communicating in plain language while ensuring we get the message of security across to your staff. Our training involves:
- Instructor-guided training sessions
- Training videos
- One-on-one sessions
- Cybersecurity guides
Measuring the Impact of Cybersecurity Awareness Training
No matter if you are kicking off a new cybersecurity awareness initiative or you need to upgrade your existing program, we can help you set measurable goals for the behavioral improvements among your staff. We start by reviewing the frequency of the reported incidents at the start of training and check whether they increase during continuous training. When your team reports more incidents, it is often an indication that they can better identify suspicious activity, not that the incidents have increased. We carry out:
- Anonymous surveys
- Qualitative metrics from analysis of surveys
- Simulated attacks
- User feedback
- Tracing of risky behavior
Continuous Compliance and Strategic Training
One-off training or a tick-the-boxes exercise is not effective. It would be best to recognize that cybersecurity awareness training is a crucial strategic step toward protecting your business from cyber threats. We enroll all your employees in an ongoing cybersecurity training program that helps them to keep awareness and learning at the front of their minds. We offer:
- Phishing exercises
