CYBER SECURITY TRAINING
One of the greatest threats to information security could actually come from within your company or organization. Inside ‘attacks’ have been noted to be some of the most
dangerous since these people are already quite familiar with the infrastructure. It is not always disgruntled workers and corporate spies who are a threat. Often, it is the non- malicious, uninformed employee.
The focus will be on uninformed users who can do harm to your network by visiting websites infected with malware, responding to phishing e-mails, storing their login information in an unsecured location, or even giving out sensitive information over the phone when exposed to social engineering.
One of the best ways to make sure company employees will not make costly errors in regard to information security is to institute company-wide security-awareness training initiatives that include, but are not limited to classroom style training sessions, security awareness website(s), helpful hints via e-mail, or even posters. These methods can help ensure employees have a solid understanding of company security policy, procedure and best practices.
Some of the more important items to cover in your security awareness training are your organization’s security policy, data classification and handling, workspace and desktop security, wireless networks, password security, phishing, hoaxes, malware.
