Data breaches are on the rise and it’s getting more and more dangerous to function online. This is where a good security awareness program is important. Most importantly, we (the nerds) need YOU to help keep things secure.
That’s right. Security is more than an IT or Security department function and we haven’t been as good at communicating that to you in the past.
You may hear professionals claim how everyone is getting compromised over simple attacks that have been around for decades. It starts off as something that’s easy to prevent then launches into an intelligence war. “It’s easy to protect yourself,” some may claim. “All you need to do is be careful what you download, who you talk to, and what you allow to happen.” They give off the vibe that people don’t care.
If you boil everything down to its most basic essence, then maybe that could be true. If it’s so easy then why do we continue to get hammered with news of more breaches?
Unfortunately, even the best security awareness programs out there are missing one key part.
This security awareness training course will not only give you the “what” to look out for, but also the “why” and how the “what” works. After taking this course you’ll be armed with knowledge on how to better protect yourself and your organization from threats.
Surprisingly, the biggest change will probably not be to start doing, but rather to stop doing. You’ll be surprised to how some of your behavior is super risky, even without you realize you were doing it.
And the best part is, I won’t twist your arm or shame you into changing. I sincerely want you to succeed so there’s no victim shaming here. I believe there’s a better way to change your behavior than vehemently shove security terms and nerd speak down your throat.
