Why is cybersecurity training essential?
Awareness training is a fundamental and essential process for effectively protecting a company. But did you know that 95% of cybersecurity breaches are due to human error? Another 95% of cyber-attacks result from phishing scams. On top of that, only 38% of global organizations state that they are prepared to handle a sophisticated cyber-attack. And worse, as much as 54% of companies say they have experienced one or more attacks in the last 12 months - this number rises every month.
Social engineering is a favorite tactic among cybercriminals. It is the psychological manipulation of victims to convince them to unwittingly surrender private data that is then subverted for nefarious purposes. Another well-known technique is phishing, where phony emails or links are spread to employees who have their login credentials mined.
Which employees should complete the training?
Your employees are your first and primary line of defense against online crime. That is where cybersecurity awareness training comes into play —quipping your employees with the knowledge and skills they need to protect themselves from criminal elements.

Each day employees are tricked into opening an email containing some malware, which is the company's initial step to be compromised. Similarly, employees who cause internal breaches usually indicate the company does not provide training regarding sensitive or customer information handling. As such, the company is legally responsible.
Uneducated employees pose a significant threat to their company. “Then it won’t happen to us” attitude is no longer an excuse. Regulators and auditors do not forgive companies that do not have these basic and effective processes in place.
