Cybersecurity Training is by far the most effective way to defend your organization from tactics like phishing, ransomware attacks and the myriad of other problems out there today.
Recognizing how important your users are in your cybersecurity efforts is the first step in locking down your business’ cybersecurity.
Why Aren’t Cybersecurity Technologies Going To Keep You Safe?
A majority of cybersecurity technologies offered today include the best in vital software, from firewalls to anti-malware to data encryption and more. However, as important as this technology is, on its own, it simply isn’t enough.
The key to truly comprehensive cybersecurity is simple, yet often overlooked: the user.
The best cybersecurity technology and practices in the world can be undone by one staff member who doesn’t understand how to use them, or how to protect your organizations data.
LaScala Trains Your Staff In Cybersecurity Best Practices
Cybersecurity Training helps your employees learn how to recognize and avoid being victimized by phishing emails and scam websites.
They learn how to handle security incidents when they occur. If your employees are informed about what to look for, how to block attempts, and where they can turn for help, this alone is worth the investment.
Our Cybersecurity Training services will offer exercises, interactive programs, and even simulated phishing attacks to test your staff on a number of key areas:
- How to identify and address suspicious emails, phishing attempts, social engineering tactics, and more
- How to use business technology without exposing data and other assets to external threats by accident
- How to respond when you suspect that an attack is occurring or has occurred
This scam is no longer limited to email. Hackers have branched out to social media “invite” links, text messaging, and others.
Cybercriminals cast a wide net at employees via email that appears legitimate. Once a link has been clicked, hackers can penetrate your network.
This more defined approach to phishing schemes targets specific individuals. The hacker may utilize some personal information about an individual to gain their confidence.
When malicious software infiltrates a system, it can cripple your organization. Hackers may coerce payment from your business in exchange for a cure.
When an employee opens a link they believe is sent from a coworker or supervisor, it may contain software that helps the hacker gain control over your network and sensitive data. Cybercriminals may coerce you to pay to get your files back. Or worse, they may sell the material on the dark web.
Your staff can have a significant effect on your cybersecurity – either they know enough to keep your assets secure, or they don’t, and therefore present a serious threat to your security.
At the end of the day, there is no perfect technological solution that will save you from cybercrime’s social engineering techniques. It all comes down to you (and the other users at your business), and how capable you are at spotting a scam when it comes into your inbox.
