Every good business leader knows that training is essential for a highly productive team. But have you ever considered giving your staff cybersecurity training? You really should.
What is it?
It’s about increasing awareness of how criminals try to break into your IT system and the devastating consequences if they do.
Employees can learn:
- How to spot the different types of fake emails and messages, and what to do with them
- The risk of social engineering by email, phone, or text message
- Why we use basic security tools such as password managers and multi-factor authentication (where you generate a code on another device)
By holding regular cybersecurity training sessions, you can keep everyone up to date. And develop a great culture of security awareness. It’s another layer of protection to help ensure that your business doesn’t become part of a scary statistic (one small business is hacked every 19 seconds).
As the leader, it’s critical for you to do the training, too. You’ll be one of the most targeted people in the business, as you probably have access to all the systems, including the bank account.
If you don’t already have cybersecurity training in place, we’d love to help. Yeo & Yeo Technology’s Security Awareness Training solution showcases best practices for a company’s first line of defense — its employees — and teaches them how to detect and prevent cyberattacks.
