On Cyber Security Awareness Training
Just getting antivirus programs for the business computers alone isn’t enough to ensure a 360-degree
safety of your digital data. You need something to optimise the vigilance of the software in use. One of
the few ways that drive up the security status of business is cyber security awareness training. Just as
rules are but pointless if there is no one to enforce it, your investment in security tools is inconsequential
if your employees are not trained to use them. In cybersecurity awareness training, the staff members
are taught to watch out for phishing attempts and cyber threats that very often miss the untrained eye.
Without constant vigilance of the users, the protective software cannot perform optimally.
Why Take Up Security Awareness Training
Companies require a new approach to get their employees trained to be optimally vigilant about cyber-
bound threats and attacks. This is not so much of a corrective, but a preventive measure. The training
has helped companies to be proactive about a possible threat and eliminate the threats, even before it
enters the system and cause damage. In an organisation where employees are trained to watch out for
cyber threats and detect them by sight and signs, the security gets manifolds more effective.
What Do They Teach in These Training Programs
The syllabus of a GDPR compliance Manchester training program include multiple topics on security and
compliance. Although there are inclusive set courses that are taken by those who do not have an area of
focus, consultants like to prepare syllabi for the client companies depending on their predominant risks
and worries. Typically, they cover some key aspects of security, namely, email security, web security, data
protection, mobile security and such. The idea is to arm the trainees with adequate knowledge to
identify and block a threat as or when it appears. Cybercrime is an organised crime that is nearly as old
as the computers itself. Although all attempts to uproot it have been outplayed so far, it does not mean
that we can let our guards down and suffer the damages. Through these training programs, a business
can teach and train its employees to be more vigilant and effective in its fight against Internet crimes.
Special Focus on Social Engineers and Malware
At this point, there are chiefly two kinds of threats that any ISO 27001 consultant would address in their
training program. The first is malware and the second is social engineering. Malware are particularly
threatening to organisations because of their ransomware style of attacks. From just a nuisance, it has
gone to mature into a legitimate threat to the integrity, availability and confidentiality of business
information. Anti-spam filters are effective only up to a point. They are often undetectable, and far less
preventable. Another more sinister technique often employed by hackers to make unlawful break-in into
people’s computers is social engineering. It is when an attacker gains access to information through
manipulation of human relationships.
