Cybersecurity Month reminds us: security awareness is essential
After 17 years, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is more important than ever, as is security awareness training for your staff. Cybercriminals are increasingly more sophisticated, attacking and breaching networks that seemed lock tight only a few years, even months ago—and more threats are emerging daily. That's why all of us at EO Johnson Business Technologies and Locknet Managed IT are taking this October to raise awareness of the cyber issues businesses face today.
NCSAM is spearheaded by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA). This year's theme: "Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart." An essential component of being cybersmart is staying up to date with the latest threats, security tools and strategies through security awareness training.
How security awareness training helps your business
Hackers always seem to be a step ahead: read the latest cybercrime headlines and you'll see a remarkable number of sophisticated attacks on businesses of all sizes. And while many companies have equally as sophisticated information technology experts on their side, new threats are always emerging. Worse, a single breach can bring company operations to a halt and damage an organization's reputation for the long haul.
Security education and awareness training serves as a critical link in the chain of protection for your company—and client—data. It empowers your employees to protect your network. Because hackers know employees are often a business vulnerability, they frequently focus their efforts on trying to trick your staff. Attempts may include attacks via phone, emails or other outlets and devices. The goal is to capture valuable financial information, personal data, or information to feed into their scams. Sometimes, cybercriminals will play the long game—gathering this information to use in sinister ways down the road.
Our cybersecurity experts are both up to date on the latest threats and vulnerabilities, and adept at sharing this knowledge with your staff, so they can head off an attack before it starts. The result: your network stays safe and protected, even in the face of the digital world's most sophisticated attacks.
Cybersecurity training for your employees
The need for security awareness training doesn't just arise during cybersecurity month; it's a year-round, evergreen need for businesses of all sizes. Businesses that hope to thrive in the future need to address network security concerns today. Ready to get started?
