KMT WORKPLACE SECURITY AWARENESS
Cyber security training courses to help protect your business
Visibility and understanding — these are two of the most important concepts related to cyber security for small to medium-sized businesses. Effective cyber security is not a set-and-forget exercise — it requires constant vigilance from everyone involved in the business including customers, staff, and leadership.
Cyber security awareness training is a non-negotiable component of an effective security strategy. As a business owner, your staff is often the first line of defence to protect against attacks on your data through email phishing, scam attempts, malicious links, and other kinds of cybercrime.
What is Cyber Security Awareness Training?
The key to protecting your business from a cyber attack is cyber security awareness training. According to the ACSC, 30% of data breaches were caused by human error (1). If you are wondering why your employees are such a big risk it is important to understand what security awareness training is.
So What is Cybersecurity Awareness Training?
Cybersecurity awareness involves being mindful of cybersecurity in day to day situations. Being aware of the dangers of browsing the web, checking email and interacting online are all components of cybersecurity awareness. Cyber awareness training can be customised to your business needs. From a formal security awareness training program to a monthly email with tips and tricks, any cyber awareness and training is sure to significantly improve employee behaviour and cultural change.
Whilst cyber security awareness is the first step, employees must willingly embrace and proactively use cybercrime practices for it to be effective. This is often referred to as a ‘security first culture’. A Security First Culture is a business’s collective awareness, attitudes and behaviours towards security. Studies show that businesses with strong cyber first cultures experience increased visibility to potential threats, reduced cyber incidents and greater post-attack resilience, among other measurable benefits.
For a cyber first culture to be effective, it is important to make security training not only engaging and relevant to your teams so they understand how cyber security impacts them both in and outside of work. With today’s hybrid workplace, it is more important than ever that teams have adopted a cyber first mindset. As leaders it is important to help employees understand how security education will benefit them – if you succeed you will create lasting behaviour change and a cyber first culture.
