Strengthen Your Human Firewall by Training Your Employees to Spot Security Risks with our Security Awareness Training Services

The objective of an effective Cybersecurity Awareness Training program should be to empower and encourage your employees to become proactive security assets that are always aware and vigilant against cyber threats. Cybersecurity awareness training teaches individuals how to protect themselves and their organizations from cyber threats like hacking, Phishing, and Malware attacks. It teaches people to be vigilant in using technology safely and securely, for example, by creating strong passwords, spotting fake emails, and avoiding downloading suspicious files.

Once your system users embrace our cybersecurity awareness training, they will become part of a security culture within your organization. Users keep cybersecurity at the top of their thought processes in everything they do; This is your human firewall.CyberSecurity Awareness Training for NYS DFS cyber security laws
