SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING
30% of phishing emails are opened. And about 12% of targets go on to click the link or attachment. Most of us rely on technology, such as anti-virus software, to keep us cyber-secure. Generally, that is a good thing. But part of being cyber-safe is about being educated, learning how to adjust your online routines and habits to improve your cybersecurity.
As many organisations and individuals have discovered, cyber-criminals are only too willing to exploit our lack of knowledge around how breaches occur. But learning how to be cyber-secure is often easy and quick to do. Just 10 minutes a month of online training can help to make you, and your organisation, cybersecure.
Why Do You Need Security Awareness Training?
LRQA Nettitude strongly believes that one of the most significant vulnerabilities to data security is presented through people. Countless data breach surveys have highlighted that data compromise is commonly caused from within an organisation. This is not suggesting that all organisation’s employ hackers or employees with criminal undertones. However, many data breaches are caused by users with poor IT security knowledge, or poor understanding of how to deal with digital data in general.
LRQA Nettitude provides on-site security awareness training for staff, which is tailored to meet your organisation’s requirements. We can provide pragmatic training, structured to help protect your organisation’s data assets. This can be supported through a custom web training portal, designed to be deployed within your company Intranet.
Instead of diving into bits and bytes, firewalls and encryption, LRQA Nettitude’s security consultants will keep their course high level and present in real-world business talk.
LRQA Nettitude aims to get your employees to buy-in to the training. As a consequence, we look to provide a module designed to help your employees to protect their own data when they are at home, browsing Facebook, or conducting their online banking, and more.
In LRQA Nettitude’s experience, when employees understand how to protect their data at home, they can learn some good practice that will frequently carry over into the workplace. Combining this approach with the organisation’s other business-focused security objectives, it is possible to experience significant improvements in employee security awareness.
LRQA Nettitude can provide proactive security awareness monitoring services on an on-going basis. Through technical penetration tests, focused on identifying data leakage. Through to scheduled phishing attempts across the external-facing email infrastructure. LRQA Nettitude can assess how well users understand the company’s information security policy.
Through conducting these scheduled tests, organisations can develop their security awareness program and build a more robust program that protects the organisation’s information assets.
How Will The Training Be Delivered?
Security Awareness Training is not a one-time course but rather an on-going effort to increase buy-in from your employees.
LRQA Nettitude Security Consultants can work with your organisation to deliver on-going coaching and development which will increase cybersecurity awareness and enhance cyber best practice.
These sessions can now also be delivered in a remote environment and are designed to be highly intuitive and engaging (meaning no death by PowerPoint!).
Frequently Asked Questions about Data Privacy Security
What is an incident response policy?
An Incident response plan or policy is a process you create before you experience a cyberattack. This is so that your team has a procedure to follow when you do experience a data breach. LRQA Nettitude follows the CREST Cybersecurity Incident Response process which is broken down into 3 phases: preparation, response, and follow up. Having a breach plan gives you the confidence to quickly nullify any threat to your data privacy security.
Why is data privacy security important?
Although it has always been important, the implications and need for higher security are coming into play now that technology is indispensable to everyday life. Using apps, browsing websites, and shopping online are all examples of how your data will be stored and managed online. For organisations today, the threat of cyber theft is a pertinent one. Having comprehensive data privacy plans in place can reduce and mitigate the risks of such events.
