Why is cyber security awareness training important?
People are often both an organisation’s most valuable and most vulnerable assets, but it is not always obvious to employers that a greater level of protection may be required for their people.
Training will not only help employees understand the potential risk of a cyber-attack and how it may impact their organisation but will also better equip them to identify and prevent such an attack protecting both themselves and the business. They will gain an understanding of the importance and sensitivity of your organisation's data helping meet certain compliance objectives.
Cyber-attacks exploiting human vulnerability are growing at an alarming rate with devastating consequences for businesses and individuals alike which may include significant financial loss coupled with reputational damage and a loss of customer confidence.
What form does the training take?
Training will be delivered by an experienced security consultant via a video link or on client site as required.
How long will the training take?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the length of time required will vary depending on the content required for a particular audience. As a guide awareness training for general staff could be around two hours depending on attendee interaction with specific developer sessions lasting for around two days.
A&O IT Group will work with you to ensure that the content is selected or developed to suit your exact requirements. By investing in training now, businesses can help protect themselves against future attacks.
How much does cyber security awareness training cost?
Pricing will depend on several factors including content and any client requirements but starts from around £1500.
How often should cyber security awareness training be taken?
Typically, it is recommended that awareness training be completed every 6 months to 1 year to prevent people from becoming complacent. It is important that training is enforced on a regular basis through other media such as posters in the workplace, emails or background images on laptops or desktops for example.
Using differing media and changing the message can help to keep cyber security awareness in the forefront.
What are the consequences of inadequate cyber security awareness training?
Cyber security breaches can have devastating consequences for businesses and individuals alike. Without adequate awareness training, employees are more likely to fall victim to phishing scams and other cyber attacks.
This can lead to sensitive data being leaked, financial losses, and reputational damage. In order to protect your business or organisation, it is essential to provide employees with comprehensive cyber security awareness training.
