Cyber Security Online Training Course

Cyber security and cyber security awareness are critical components for any successful business. Without an embedded culture of cyber security awareness and enforcement, investment into comprehensive cyber security defence systems is unlikely to keep you safe from emerging threats.

Every business is at risk of a cyber-attack. In 2017, cyber attacks on organisations cost the UK economy £10 billion, with seven out of ten companies falling victim to a cyber-attack or breach [1]. Typically organisations worry about their vulnerabilities in the technology they use and forget to look at the very people using those technologies everyday – their employees. According to the 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report, more than 90% of cyber-attacks were traced back to human error, suggesting that mistakes caused by humans both initiates and amplifies the risk of cyber-crime and the damage it poses to businesses [2]. The best way for business to combat this threat is to create a risk-aware workplace culture, and that starts with cyber security awareness.

Criminals and hacktivists know the easiest way to steal data and access secure networks is to target individuals who already have this access through stealing their credentials. They are the first and primary line of defence against these types of attacks and this is why cyber security awareness is essential in terms of equipping your employees with the knowledge and skills required to protect themselves and your business from attack. If employees are unable to make an informed and educated decision about something as simple as what network to connect to or which email attachment to open, you’re at risk of a cyber-attack. A business’s cyber security is only as strong as your weakest employee!!

Cyber Security Awareness online training

Cyber security training should be aimed at all people across the business to give them a basic understanding of how to keep themselves, other people, the data and systems they have access to safe at all times.

Cyber security awareness online training is not a one off exercise, it should be repeated at least quarterly and employees should be asked to verify their understanding. This should be supplement with regular scenario based testing e.g. simulated phishing attack. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that annual organisational wide security awareness training is fit for purpose. Hackers are continually changing their attack vectors and as such you will need to update your training accordingly. This will heighten the chances of identifying and preventing a scam or attack before it is fully enacted, which in turn could reduce the cost of recovery and damage to brand reputation etc.

Something else you should consider, is investing in working with cyber security professionals who can engage directly with your organisation, to bespoke whatever training is required. This will ensure that your requirements are addressed specifically and that associated risks are appropriately mitigated against. In today’s ever changing cyber, legal and regulatory environments, it’s not simply a case of mitigating risks there are clear requirements that business have to meet e.g. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which can be overlooked.
