In recent days, Cybersecurity has become a priority concern for all organizations due to the increased number of cyberattacks, mostly ransomware. But it is also observed that the companies investing in cybersecurity services do not give importance to employee security awareness. Most employees are not sure regarding the security posture and have no idea regarding the security policies, procedures and best practices. If an employee is not aware of the security threat, it is not possible for them to avoid, report or even detect the issue. Hence, it is critical to developing a good security culture in the organization with proper security awareness programs.
What is Cybersecurity Awareness Training?
Cybersecurity awareness training is an ongoing or one-time process, wherein all the employees are given the required knowledge regarding the existing and arising security concerns. It helps to avoid risky employee actions that might lead to security concerns like data loss, financial loss, etc.
Importance of Cybersecurity Awareness Training
- Security awareness training boosts employee confidence by giving them insights on the latest security concerns
- Employee awareness training on information security is an integral part of all the government compliance requirements
- Remote working being a common practice now, a security training will provide the employees with insights on how to handle the official devices, when away from the official infrastructure.
- Proper training saves you from costly data breaches, operational disruptions, business information theft, etc. resulting in reputational damage.
- The training instills a better cybersecurity culture in the organization, making employees stick to strong passwords and best security practices.
Wrapping up, all types of organizations – big, medium or small must invest in security awareness training for their employees to protect themselves and the company from exploits and attacks.
