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?
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.
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, Nettitude’s security consultants will keep their course high level and present in real-world business talk.
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 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.
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. 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.
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 Healthcare Cybersecurity
What does penetration testing involve?
In penetration testing for healthcare organisations, our experts simulate a hacking environment to identify any vulnerabilities within your system. Ethical hackers will penetrate the healthcare system like a threat actor would, but leave your data intact. They will create a report of these vulnerabilities and offer advice on how to eliminate them so your data remains secure.
How do you create an effective cybersecurity strategy for a healthcare organisation?
To create an effective healthcare cybersecurity framework, Nettitude recommends first identifying what your aims are and what you are trying to protect. This will determine your strategy. Then, you can decide on a framework from three broad types: control, programme, and risk frameworks. From here you can define your risk assessment goals and implement security controls. Our experts at Nettitude can assist you with this process.
What is the biggest risk in healthcare cybersecurity?
One of the biggest risks in healthcare cybersecurity is Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The internet-connected implements are vital to many hospital and healthcare functions, so much so that they have their own term: Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). These often centralise data collections for easy access, so when these are hacked, it can be very damaging. You can increase your IoMT security by educating your staff, monitoring the network, using VLANs, and devices that meet certified IoT standards.
