Why your organisation needs security awareness training

Security awareness training in 2021

In 2021, the reality is that any organisation has the potential to fall victim to a cyber attack. Despite many technical measures that help mitigate this risk, your people are the simplest attack vector for malicious actors.

With the right knowledge, many of these human errors can be easily addressed. Cyber awareness tackles risks including phishing, poor passwords, ransomware attacks to multistage data breaches.

Human error consistently plays a role in information security incidents. With an increase in ransomware and phishing threats businesses need to include security awareness in their network security strategy.

Reasons to invest in cyber security awareness training

Employees and teams are now working remotely more and more. This increases your security surface area as well as blending people's work and home lives.

Now more than ever are you reliant upon your people making the correct choices in the face of security decisions. Investing in security awareness reduces cyber risk. It also enacts your security policies, as well as helping your employees in their personal lives.

Hut Six’s Security Awareness Training solution reduces the risk of a successful cyber attack. Preventing financial losses, damage to reputation, potential fines and litigation. As a result cybersecurity training is on every board's agenda.

What is Security Awareness Training?

Cyber awareness training enables people to recognise threats to the business and act correctly.

Security awareness software helps prevent breaches from human error. As well as matching your technical defences with a culture of security. So often your people are an attackers first target.

Reduce cyber risk and protect your business

Comprehensive reports on security awareness levels analyse what your users know and how they would react to phishing attacks. Not to mention increasing your incident reporting by enabling your staff to recognise security threats as they happen.

Hut Six’s training solution provides continuous value, is automated where possible, and provides a tailored experience.

Cybertraining that works protecting your business

Why is Security Awareness Training Needed?

Increasingly security awareness is part of your compliance obligations. It prevents financial and brand damages from successful cyber-attacks or data breaches. And protects your sensitive data by educating the people who process it.

Effective security awareness training programs help you gain cyber security certifications for your business. What's more they help achieve compliance with GDPR, ISO 27001, SOC 2 and Cyber Essentials.

Achieve compliance and demonstrate security

Cyber security training modules for your employees are a necessary part of any risk management strategy. They demonstrate to clients and potential customers a commitment to ensuring robust cybersecurity.

Hut Six's cyber security awareness training program is designed to help you fulfil your compliance obligations.

How does Security Awareness Training work?

We empower people to improve cybersecurity in their personal lives. Hut Six believe people deserve to be educated about the cyber threats they face at home and in the workplace.

If you can make a personal argument for security it will have a far great impact upon them. By teaching people how to secure their social media profiles, home WiFi and protect their family you will secure your business.

Empower your people and create a secure culture

Help them to protect their own personal information, and they in turn will help you protect yours. Surprisingly, corporate Security Awareness Training doesn’t have to be so corporate.

By teaching people how to avoid phishing attacks, social engineering and ransomware you can improve their personal cybersecurity. Making it personal is more likely to change behaviours, reduce security risks and create a security culture.
