What is Cybersecurity Training?
Cybersecurity training provides an individual, group, or an organization’s designated personnel, comprehensive and ongoing security training. The training will also cover cybersecurity countermeasures and cyber intrusion awareness techniques.
Each user will experience different levels of intrusion attempts from large-scale, to a disastrous event, to a single subtle attack that gets overlooked but is harmful. The training focuses on preventing cyber-attacks, protecting operation systems and data, to detecting and recognizing subtle clues, and the authorized steps to combat an intrusion.
What Are Socially Engineered Threats?
Socially engineered threats, also known as SET, are designed by cyber attackers. They trick a person or employee into unsuspectingly giving authorized access to your organization’s confidential information.
The typical socially engineered threats are phishing emails, voicemails, SMS messages, and found physical media such as USB or SD card. The types of SET attacks each staff member gets trained to spot are Baiting, Phishing, Pretexting, Quid Pro Quo, Spear Phishing, and Tailgating threats.
Cybersecurity Training That Combats Cyber Intrusion and Social Engineering Threats
By their design, these threats rely on fooling unsuspecting and untrained employees or co-workers. Without ongoing Cybersecurity Training, a staff member unknowingly grants access to secure data which could result in financial fraud to your organization. But, you can fight these attempts that slip through your security gateways unnoticed.
