Security Awareness Program

Your Employees Are Your Biggest Risk

According to Warren Buffett, one of the most successful investors of all time, cyber attacks are “the number one problem with mankind.” Nevertheless, the majority of organisations still fail to do two key things: cultivate a strong cybersecurity culture among employees and build a strong IT security team and toolset.

Our three-part online course tackles these challenges. At the end, you will have a better understanding of your organisation’s cybersecurity posture and a checklist of essential do’s and don’ts to enable long-term behaviour change in your organisation.

The Human Factor: Malicious Insiders vs. Negligent End Users

Breaches resulting from insider misdeeds are front-page news on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the average employee misses a critical common thread across many these stories: that the root cause of the incident was a non-malicious but uninformed person just like them. It’s up to IT pros to understand the techniques attackers use, educate their users to avoid common traps, and take the necessary steps to avoid breaches.

In this webinar, Liam Cleary explains:
  • Common attacks that exploit unwitting end users: websites infected with malware, phishing e-mails, social engineering and so on
  • Best practices for increasing the security intelligence of business users
  • Ways to avoid data theft by disgruntled workers and corporate spies

Know What Works: How to Succeed Despite the Shortage of IT Security Talent

While the insider threat is dominating the headlines and boardroom discussions, there’s another critical issue lurking in the shadows: a global shortage of experienced cybersecurity professionals. As organisations adopt cloud technologies, data volumes grow and IT complexity increases, this lack of talent can lead to data breaches, compliance failures and other costly errors.

By the end of this session, you will know:
  • How to find and hire the right people in your organisation
  • How to increase the productivity of your IT security team
  • How to bridge the remaining skills gap with automated solutions that help detect security risks and anomalous user behaviour before they result in a data breach

A Firm Foundation: Building a Culture of Cybersecurity Awareness

Too many organisations wait until an employee’s error results in a breach before they take employee security training seriously. Computer-based training and occasional email blasts are simply not enough. You need a company-wide security awareness program that encourages cooperation and communication, not just compliance to security policy and procedures.

Watch this session as we share our experience with:
  • Bridging the communication and knowledge gap between the security team and other business units
  • Raising the security consciousness and competency of business users
  • Efficiently teaching proper security behaviour patterns
