Cybersecurity Awareness Training
Cybersecurity Awareness Training for your employees is a critical element of your overall Cybersecurity plan for your business. Your employees should understand the value of protecting data and other assets that the business owns. They should understand the importance that online protection has for relationships with your clients, partners and employees, and the risks involved when that protective barrier is breached.
Not only should they understand the variety of cyber risks and attacks that occur, but also what they should do if they suspect something is wrong, and equally important is why they should act that way. Employees must be made and kept aware continuously of your company’s policies and procedures in the area of information security, including escalation procedures, contingency plans and more. Cybersecurity training programs must be engaging and ensure retention in the employees’ minds. Cybersecurity needs to be a #1 priority while making decisions of any kind in the business world today.
Cybersecurity Awareness Training is an important component of compliance with certain frameworks and regulations like PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and others. Depending on your organization's need, your Cybersecurity Awareness Training can include sections for managing cardholder data (CHD), or data privacy requirements for protected health information (PHI), special considerations for Personally Identifiable Information (PII), etc.
