Awareness Training

Digital criminals tend to choose the weakest link in our defenses – the end user. Our security awareness training addresses this by transforming users into well-informed and reliable cyber defenses.

Build end-users into your security architecture to lower cyber risk

All digital business involves digital risk. This has traditionally been mitigated with technical controls to address attacks, such as vulnerability exploitation. However, there is a limit to how much firewalls, endpoint protection, application security, and cryptography can achieve. End-users are often the weakest link and a key target for cyber attackers.

For example, consider how often you exchange documents with your business partners. An attacker could craft malicious documents, pretend to be a business partner, and send them to your end-users. This not only compromises their computer, but could mean identity theft and even enterprise-wide infection. And while we can lower this risk through document authentication, content scanning, and similar methods, these controls are imperfect and do not address residual risk.

To address this, your end-users need to be part of your security architecture. If they can recognize unusual documents, unusual sending times, or transactions that lack reason, they form a tough, intelligent defense that exceeds static defenses and artificial intelligence.
