Security Awareness Training

Employees are a major part of an organization’s attack surface and remain the greatest vulnerability to cybersecurity, frequently targeted by attackers.  Ensuring that employees have the knowledge and skills to defend themselves and the organization against threats is an essential part of any security program and a requirement for those organizations that need to comply with government and industry regulations, such as FISMA, PCI, HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley. A good security awareness program will educate employees on corporate policies, procedures, standards,  guidelines and industry best practices for working with information technology. A critical (yet often overlooked) component of security awareness training is what to do in the event of a data breach. The minutes and hours following the discovery of a data breach are critical to not only preventing the attack from spreading but also to preserving the environment for forensic examination. Our consultants will develop a comprehensive security awareness training program and provide training that is designed specifically for your business.

Our standard approach includes:

  • Designing a program that is compliant with the laws and regulations that apply to your business.
