Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Cybercrime is constantly evolving. Organizations of every size are at risk with small businesses being the most vulnerable because they often have lower IT security budgets and fewer security best practices. While a managed IT service provider can provide protection via security software to reduce security incidents and phishing attempts; this doesn’t address the reality that  social engineering accounts for 90 per cent of all cyber attacks on businesses.

What is social engineering?

Social engineering is the act of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. Trickery or deception is used for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or computer system access. Social engineering scams are most commonly deployed through email.

When it comes to IT security, there’s no silver bullet and that’s why we spent six months refining our new security offering in an effort to secure your networks and business data.

Prior to launching our Security Awareness Training offering, we analyzed our database of security-related tickets across our client base. One trend stood out; most incidents were tied to a lack of user education and IT security awareness. Therefore, we’ve focused on elevating the knowledge of your staff to heighten user security awareness, education and training.
