What is IT Security Awareness Training?
Our IT Security Awareness Training is a unique training programme, delivered in collaboration with industry leader KnowB4. Our training is designed to understand exactly where your employees are at with cyber security and educate them to understand the current cyber threats landscape. We use a very comprehensive method, with real-life examples and situations, to ensure your employees become a true human firewall.
Why do you need IT Security Awareness Training?
Long gone are the days of Nigerian princes promising you millions if you share your bank details with them. Hackers now use highly intricate social engineering techniques to bypass technology and trick your employees into clicking on malicious links. If your employees aren’t trained to understand and recognise these threats, they can inadvertently permit a security breach or a cyber-heist, putting your whole business at risk. It is critical for them to have the knowledge to defend themselves against these cyber attacks.
Working with Select Technology will give you access to the best IT security awareness training programme and help you ensure your employees understand exactly what spam, phishing, malware and ransomware are and how to defend themselves.
What can you expect from our Training Programme?
Before starting the training programme, we will conduct a baseline testing to asses the Phish-prone percentage of your users. We will create a simulated phishing, vishing or smishing attack and analyse how many of your employees have been tricked by these emails. This will help you understand clearly how your employees can cause a security breach and assess where you are at with IT security.
Training your users
Once we have assessed how at risk you are, you will gain access to the largest online library of security awareness training content, focusing on different elements of cyber security. A comprehensive and user-friendly programme, our training is delivered through interactive modules and include video lessons, games and newsletters to remind your users to continue their training. Automated training campaigns with scheduled reminder emails are also included and will give you the peace of mind to know your employees are constantly refreshing their skills and keeping on top of cyber security threats.
Modules are 5, 15, 25 and 45 minutes long, depending on the subjects they cover and clearly explain the mechanisms of spam, phishing, spear-phishing, malware and social engineering. Your staff will be trained to recognise these threats and learn how they can apply this knowledge to their day-to-day job. Employees are tested throughout the process, through short comprehension tests and scenario-based exercises. You will be able to monitor progress and see your staff get more and more aware of potential threats.
At the end of the training programme, we will launch another testing campaign to see how your Phish-prone percentage of users has evolved from the first baseline test. This will give you a clear performance indicator and give you the peace of mind to know that your business is secure and your weakest link has been eliminated.
See the Results
We understand it is important for you to see the results of your training. This is why our IT Security Awareness training includes an Enterprise-Strength Report. This will clearly highlight what you need to focus your training on and maximise security compliance. Stats and graphs are also available to use for your management reports, to show how well the training programme is working. You will also be able to track user performance thanks to the personal timeline feature.
