Why is continuous cybersecurity training crucial for your business?

The world of technology is  in constant and rapid change. Cyberthreats develop, advance and improve every day in step with the behaviour of users. Cybersecurity awareness training is one of the easiest and most effective tools that an IT service provider can offer to counter cybercriminal breaches. 

All the reasons regular upgrades are vital for your staff:

  1. To protect your business: cybersecurity is usually handled by humans who represent, in most cases, the first line of defence. Given that cyberattacks are becoming more frequent and sophisticated, awareness about the damaging effects can help employees to recognize a threat and take the appropriate measures to protect your IT infrastructure and its content. 
  1. To protect personal information: employees may have access to important data such as client personal data, financial information, confidential business issues, etc. If these data are compromised, the consequences can be disastrous for a company and its clients. 
  1. To avoid financial damage: IT attacks can entail heavy costs for a business due to loss of data, service interruptions or the costs linked to restoring the system and the qualified personnel required to carry it out. 
  1. To enhance your company’s reputation: if clients lose confidence in your ability to protect their personal information, it can have negative short and long term repercussions for your entire business.  

It is essential to consider these training sessions as an ongoing and progressive process that must be continuously updated. To better understand the risks and quickly identify the traps, the agenda for training should include a comprehensive package of the following subjects:

  • password security,
  • phishing,
  • malicious software,
  • social engineering,
  • data protection,
  • reporting an incident,
  • mobile device security,
  • remote work security,
  • compliance.

In general, cybersecurity awareness training must be regarded as a constantly evolving  approach that requires regular backup and updating. Clearly a worthwhile investment, it allows employees
to stay up-to-date on all the latest hacking trends and the best practices to adopt to ensure effective IT surveillance and thereby protect the business against potential cyberattacks.
