Why Cyber Security Awareness Training?

  • Threat Landscape - The threat landscape changes constantly & security awareness is a perishable skill. Continually training your employees on new & emerging threats creates a safer employee & a safer organization.
  • Regulatory Requirements - Regulations such as GLBA, PCI, HIPAA, & Sarbanes-Oxley require security awareness training because people are still a weak link in IT security.
  • Bring Your Own Devices policies (BYOD) - Your network is less because your staff are using devices & connections that are outside your security policy. BYOD requires a good security training program.
