Pat yourself on the back. If you’re here looking for a Cyber Security training module that’s right for your business, you’ve already accomplished step one of building your Human Firewall —identifying a need. It is a crucial step, in fact, to understand throughout the training process both the need to secure our digital assets from online attack and how that need translates into value for our organization.
The majority of our partners are seeking Cyber Security services and training because of the recent exponential growth of online threats, or because they recently suffered a breach in their network. Either way, finding the right training module can push our clients ahead of the curve on Cyber Security awareness.
Working with a Cosant expert, you will explore the training modules and choose an introduction to Cyber Security awareness that is right for you. These introductory modules take users on a tour of the threat landscape to show you the most common methods used by cybercriminals to wreak havoc on your computer systems and mobile devices. There are several opportunities in which to engage real-world scenarios that help you identify the signs of a possible attack. The introductory training content is split up into three different lengths, allowing users to customize their level of engagement.
From there, the training modules go on a deep dive into some of the most common cyber threats and some of the various remediation efforts your business can undertake to ensure your employees don’t fall victim to online attacks. Also, some of the courses focus on different aspects of regulatory compliance. Here are a few examples:
