Information Security Awareness Training

When dealing with IT Security Awareness Training and determining its necessity, people may believe that technology alone protects personal or work information from being exploited or breached; when in fact, no type of technology is safe and most require some sort of protection! Most of the responsibility lies in the hands of the user and the network security techniques they choose to utilize.

Due to the proliferation of social engineering tactics and security breaching methods, and because the Internet can easily introduce and spread malware without user knowledge, it is absolutely vital to learn the right and wrong ways to use technology and the Internet. For some strange, illogical reason, security awareness training is often viewed as a luxury and not as a necessity.

In reality, this critical training is in fact necessary, and does not just improve an employee’s skills, but proves to provide an enormously important end result, a massive investment in the company, by increasing security, efficiency, effectiveness, compliance, profit, and much more!

Security Awareness:
Customer Security Awareness Program is absolutely essential if you want to best protect your company, your data, your assets, and any other important information. Nowadays, the cyber world, and the world in general, is full of scams and malicious intentions, and these are only growing and advancing, especially in hacking methods, so protecting your personal and workplace data is as crucial as protecting your bank account. Hackers, identity thieves, and malicious people and programs roam the Internet just searching for easy targets, and that is why IT Security Awareness is vital. Well, to protect your organization and to ensure proficient and effective enterprise security, it is essential to establish a baseline of required fundamental security knowledge and information on potential threats for ALL employees. The best way to ensure and maintain this baseline is to regularly and consistently train all current employees and new hires, and possibly even testing them.

The bottom line is: security awareness training can no longer be viewed as "optional" in the corporate world, or basically, in any situation. In competitive markets, security awareness training may very well be a matter of survival! When there are gaps in security awareness and alertness, and lack of essential knowledge, there becomes an immediate and dangerous risk to all of the organization’s confidential information, revenues, and data!

Would your organization takes these risks, or will you provide proper security awareness training? With the current economy the way it is, and with companies cutting costs and trimming back staff, it is understandable to be very prudent and hesitant to spend money; however, it is actually now that is more important than ever, to have properly trained employees ensuring the security of your devices, systems, and sensitive data!
